Next up is our guitar solo, played by Guitar #2. Guitar #1 will be supporting with our main motif as well as it's heard in the intro. Here are some key points to help you through it:

1. The guitar solo uses a variety of bends, open string licks, and chromatic notes commonly used in the blues. You want to make sure to be mindful of the nuances; sliding into notes, bending into some, as well playing with plenty of vibrato and attitude.

2. The majority of the notes are derived from a E blues scale, using the notes E, G, A, Bb, B, and D. You will step outside of this slightly at the end, moving from C#mi down a half step to Cmi to play over the G#7 chord.
