Guitar Tricks 162: Joe Perry Style Lead

In this channel episode Neal shows you a lick in the key of G using a combination of the best notes in rock; the minor 3rd, major 3rd, flat 5th and 7th. It's really a challenge to make these notes work well together but this lick does a great job. You end up with a very tasty, melodic and bluesy sounding lead.

The tip of the week is on how to expand your inspiration: try playing a different guitar than your favorite one to shake things up!
