Watch the Open Letter online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Soloing the Changes

This one is based on the verse from the classic song by The Boxtops, later performed by Joe Cocker which was one of his trademark songs. Joe's version is more groovy and bluesy than the original. The changes on this song provide us with many cool opportunities to solo over the changes. To dip your toe into the water, the first chord you want to outline is the bVI7 chord. You can't miss that one as it really stands out.
