just read your posts in Franlin's Forum:
As you may remember from helping me out on the GDTRFB posts, I'm new to guitar. But I did begin to notice about soloing over chords as you pointed out in this article. now I've only done this a bit and in limited circumstances (with easy songs like Iko - D..., A... and returning to the D).
Most of the other songs I just kinda of play the key. Like Franklin's, Deal I'm playing A. GDTRFB E and eyes E most of time, G for chorus.
Do you think you could give me an idea how you would play over chords soloing in harder they come? Would you play G,F,C during the solo, or what?
unforutnately archive.org does not have harder the come. But gdlive has a great one from 3/18/78. problem is that the entire show is a single mp3 file (but harder they come is the first song)
IMHO ('78 and late '77 JGB Harder They Comes are the best!)
any insights much appreciated...
