Join Up: Lead 1 - Performance is a video guitar lesson presented by Andy Aledort and is sourced from Jam Night Vol. 3.


For the first example of soloing over this groove, I adopt what I think of s a "Freddie King" type approach via the use of very melodic blues-style phrases: over the open figure, brief single-note phrases are played between the low D root note accents. Over the verse, I begin by emulating a vocal-type melody but then switch to R&B-style sixths to add harmonized melodic figures that relate to the five chord, A, and the four chord, G.
