Thank you for joining me on this lesson.
This is a solo I recorded for the song called “Vertigini”, taken from the homonymous album (Warner Music, 2010) by Italian rock band Big Ones.
For the rhythm part, tune down your low E string down to D, making it a drop D tuning.
The scale used for the solo is mostly D minor pentatonic except for 2 notes, the B note (making this a D dorian minor) and a F# (a major third) giving the lick a bluesy feel.
The D pentatonic minor notes are: D, F, G, A, C.
The solo starts with a tremolo picking, similar to Blackmore or Van Halen licks, followed by a single note right hand tapping, ending with a bluesy lick playing both major and minor thirds.
The following octave note lick is played sliding notes.
The solo ends with a fast 32th note pentatonic run in the style of Zakk Wylde.
The original album track is also included, check it out and have fun.
