This weeks lesson is on the second solo chorus of Reconsider Baby. The first four bars are fairly straight ahead with pretty typical blues licks. The thing is here he is playing some slight ghost notes that are pretty much inaudible on the fourth measure. Again he goes back to over-bending the 7th on the G string in his usual style. He then plays his rake riff like he does in the first solo verse, ending the solo with a succession of muted low notes and another riff on the B and G string before his final muted riff on the G,D and A strings.
This solo is a great example of just how unique a blues guitarists style can be. Lowell, although obviously influenced by T-Bone was an extremely unique guitar stylist. Enjoy the lesson and remember to adapt some of the quirkiness of his phrasing into the song.
