The solo is sort of based on the vocal melody for the the verses and we'll spend most of our time doing bends on C on the 13th fret of the B string. The solo can be divided into three sections and I recommend you learning the solo this way.

The first one is very much based on the vocal melody. You'll be doing bends between C and D on the B string, but also a release bend lick that'll make you land on A on the G string with some vibrato.

The next part is based on the first, but now the timing of the bends is different. It's very important that you really hone in on the feel of the bends! This part of the solo will end the same way as the first one with releasing a bend into another bend one whole step up and landing on A.

The last part of the solo is just a really cool little lick where you'll "rake" over the top three strings with your pick. Then you'll be pulling-off from D on the G string to C on the same string and giving it a bend. A perfect solo for this song and so much fun to play!
