My band, MySoul, has been thinking of covering this! A truly great tune for rock and for guitar.
Make sure to let me know when you release your next recordings, I’ll look forward to buying them!
I probably should have waited for another week or so worth of practice before I made this lesson, as it was still a bit rough…and I forgot to point out that for the ending, I was doing one of the harmony parts, as I figured most people could easily figure out the lead part, while probably struggle finding one of the harmony lines…
Either way, thanks for stopping by, and please remember to let me know when you finish recording and release.
Pure Magic ~a waterfall for the senses. Great to see you on dragonshades, many thanks for all the likes.
I have not heard that expression for a long time, be the first one on your block to have it. Nowadays we are so disconnected, it should say be the first one to post this.
I hadn’t thought of it in a long time, and wondered if I would be the only one to recall. Thanks for stopping by.
You might want to check out Pheed. It’s a new social media site. Lots of kids on it who may be interested in learning. The part that may interest you is you can post a video FOUR HOURS LONG. I’m not their rep just tryin’ to be helpful. My Pheed is guitarsingeractor. If you sign up look me up and I’ ll subscribe and remix (retweet) your stuff.

I wish you were there when I was in high school…a struggling teenager unable to read music. A great solo! It’s right up there with Since I’ve Been Loving You and Child in Time.
It’s definitely in my top ten for favorite rock songs. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.
Thank you for the kind comment.
Rocked like a boss
Thanks, I appreciate the fact you took the time to drop by and make your generous comment.
Rick great lesson. Can you give some detail about how you set up your guitar and amp? Which coil is up ? Both? I see you have the treble switch down. What are the tone and volumes set to on the guitar?
Thanks Jeff. Before I get going, I have no idea what you mean when you write “which coil is up”.
I used the bridge pickup, volume backed off somewhere around nine, just lowered it until the pup isn’t overpowering. Backed off the treble a bit too. No pedal, just straight into the amp. If I recall, I used the 1958 section of the Vox Heritage amp, but don’t recall the settings. Best tone comes from the power tube section of an amp driving the speaker cabinet rather than using preamp to get your gain and not putting any real power to the speaker(s).
Whatever amp you use, for this kind of classic rock, you are better off using it with powertube distortion pushing the speakers when possible.
I’ve really favored lower-wattage (15W for the VOX and 22 for the Fender Super Sonic 22) amps lately because I can push them harder without the level being so loud that it’s not usable indoors.
Hope that helps.
Thank you for the feedback! I meant which pickup was pulled up bridge or neck. I play an Epiphone LP plus top with coil tap on the probuckers. I have been practicing with the bridge up and the neck down.
The Bonamassa Epi Les Paul doesn’t coil-tap. It has the Gibson U.S. Burstbuckers upgrade. I used the bridge pup, so that would be full humbucking, not single-coil because they don’t tap those pickups.
