*Second Solo Lesson Starts at 7:09

The “Hard to Handle” by The Black Crowes solos have a ton of great rock licks and a large amount of rock feel built into it. Most of the time he’s revolving around the B Minor Pentatonic and B Mixolydian scale… although I have a feeling he’s thinking of it as a Mixing Major and Minor Pentatonic type of solo.

From the half step bends to the great blues positions, this one is one of my favorite solos. I broke up each solo into different phrases to help it all sink in.
