My one big tip for Jerryish sounds = Mixolydian Mode
This seems like it shouldn't work, because B mixo is going to use a natural A which is outside the key, but generally it does sound good and right as long as the solo resolves back to the B major chord.
How can A natural be "outside the key" if the two chords in the song are B maj and A maj ?

jahozer wrote:The melody is written modally, like the outro riff. B and A are key centers and the melody changes with them. That riff doesnt make sense in B major either. Jerry absolutely solos in the key of E with his usual B mixo and chromatic runs.
The harmony is what makes the key make sense and since A major is basically half of the song, it Wouldnt make sense that it is in B.
Sheet music is notorious for giving wrong keys in the name of simplification. If it was written for "easy guitar" then it most likely calls songs in their "street key" which most people thnk of as the first chord played.
