Are there any good song solos that doesn't use the E string (thinest)?

My string broke and I need to play a couple of good songs for some people.

It'd be hard to play crazy train or eruption without an E string.

How do I improvise that?

A part in Crazy Train goes 17, 16, 14 on the E string. How do I play that on the B when it goes only to 22? XD

Help at all? You did seem to be having trouble with what, exactly, improvise means.

What the hell? The TS was asking a legitimate question, what are you thinking that justifies calling the TS a retard?


You could try tapping the notes that'd usually be played on the E string on the B for some tapping practice I guess? Or just improvise.

Put a piece of tape on the headstock and write "Gibson" on it.
If done properly, this should quadruple your sustain.

Half an hour to walk or drive? If its to walk, just walk it. It takes me half hour to walk each way to work, and I do that at 4.50 in the morning.

Either that, or order some online.

^ bingo. This thread started stupid and just went downhill from there.

If you know how to move things to the B string, do it. If you can't move it, you can't play that solo. We don't have huge lists of solos by string selection.
