D Minor Improvisation "Sloe Gin" -Joe Bonamassa
This lesson is a backing track recreation of “Sloe Gin” by Joe Bonamassa. It is in D minor (or D Melodic Minor). I will be exploring a few specific phrases that I teach and expound upon. One of the techniques covered in this video are Stevie Ray Vaughan guitar phrasing double stops and string bending. I cover some Eric Clapton style phrasing from the “Unplugged” era as well as some David Gilmour style rakes. I also cover the use of sliding octave phrasing inside of a guitar solo. Also I am covering the topic of palm muted eighth note solo techniques (Nokie Edwards style). I address how to slowly create your own style or voice on the guitar and overall solo composition.
