Soloing Application: Can’t Find My Way Home (1/2)

This is the first of a two-lesson series where we’re looking at a song called Can’t Find My Way Home, by Steve Winwood and Eric Clapton. In part 1, we’re going to learn the rhythm, because you should always be very familiar with the chord progression before you solo over it. When you’re finished this lesson, head over to part 2 for the solo.

You can download the jam track here.

The track is in the key of D, and you can see the progression and picking patterns below.

Soloing Application: Stir It Up

In this lesson we’re going to learn an eight-bar solo for the song Stir It Up. Here’s the jam track. The progression is eight bars long, and looks like this:

A | A | D | E
A | A | D | E

Because we’re in the key of A major, we’ll be soloing in the relative minor which is F# minor. We’ll be using all those great scales you’ve learned in previous lessons; the pentatonic minor, the diatonic minor, and the three position climb.

Here’s the tab for the riffs we’ll be learning – each bar contains a separate riff:

D   Bm |  G   D
