Watch the Farther On Up: Ex. 5b online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Kings of Rock & Roll Vol. 5: Eric Clapton
This is a fun solo to play in that it shifts back and forth between just two positions, G minor pentatonic in third position and the same scale played one octave higher in 15th position. Another great thing about this solo is the steady use of eighth-note triplets, which serve to drive the song along in an aggressive way. Be sure to tackle each riff carefully and notice the use of both alternate picking and phrases articulated with hammer-ons and pull-offs.
