Song solos and intros

Recommended Posts

Last year I was hooked on Blues eyes…this year it’s El Paso.This morning I played parts of both  back to back during my warm up and the “lightbulb”started to blink. Wow, there   is a lot to learn from looking/ listening to song solos and intros. Take the solo from “Blue Eyes Crying in the night” and the intro for  “El Paso”  I can help but wonder if Willie’s solo wasn’t influenced a little by Marty’s intro  for “El Paso”. Move the pattern down a few frets then tweak it with a slide, or tremolo and  walla you have something new.I am sure Steve has probably said this a thousand times, but the truth is I’ve never tried it.
