leads over browneyed women

leads over browneyed women

Postby razmablues » Sun Aug 12, 2007 4:42 pm

so the progression for the lead is:
C#m E B A then C#m E A

i know an emajor will fit perfectly throughout, but when i'm doing that, it's missing a certain .... how do you say... flavor.

what techniques (if any) do you use while doing leads over this song?

I'm not a lead player per say but when I do some leads I try to do what I think I hear Jerry do - play the scales with regards to the chord.

So you take an E scale:
E F# G# A B C# Eb E

Or the E mixo if you prefer:
E F# G# A B C# D E

But in this case I'd mix it up and use both

From there I hear him work his way into and around the chords:
C#m = C# E G#
E = E G# B
B = B Eb F#
A = A C# E

And to my ears I hear alot of emphasis on the 3rds.

I'm writing a tab out for one of the live version intro/solo's but until then, i play it Fmajor/Dminor pentatonic based around 10th position, seems to get the tone right.

Uhh...10th fret, I'm guessing? 10th position would be mighty difficult, unless of course you have a guitar with about 30-something frets. In which case, carry on! :cool: :lol:

Shit, are you serious? Oh man, my bad rounin....sorry 'bout that man, just didn't want to confuse anyone else reading it (inlcluding myself!)

I promise - you'll have plenty of opportunity with me. In fact, my brain is scheduled for it's monthly maintenance repair any day now, so it won't be long before I'm typo-ing something. :lol:
