Welcome to my first lick of the week. We'll be seeing how to play the main theme and a lick that the great Northern Irish guitarist Gary Moore played in his song "Still got the blues".






This solo has been divided into 3 sections and we'll be seeing how to play each of them in slow speed. These sections are indicated in the solo tab, so that you can locate them very easily.

Most of this solo, both in the main melody and in the actual lick, uses the A minor pentatonic scale (A, C, D, E, G) and the A natural minor scale (A, B, C, D, E, F, G, A).

Full main solo of this song (the fantastic 2 minute solo that Gary played at the end of the song) is also available as a full lesson on our Live4guitar Marketplace so check it out here:
