Watch the A-la-Bamy online guitar lesson by Will Sophie from 50 Southern Rock Licks You MUST Know
'Sweet home Alabama' was of course Skynyrd's biggest hit of all time. A song based on mainly 3 major chords with an excellent drive, but with controversial lyrics. It apparently made for the right combination at the right time. We're gonna dive a bit deeper into song structures like these. Although there are only 3 chords, we will have to decide in which key we're going to improvise. As for 'Sweet home Alabama': to me, the key is G major and not D. However, on this next little chord progression you may find soloing in the key of D major more suitable. This is lick 20.
