I have a question about the album version of the "Sunshine of Your Love" solo. In the begininng of Erics solo does he take that little lick from any other song, it sounds REALLY familiar

Are there any queers in the theatre tonight?

Its one of the licks SRV uses in "The Sky is Crying" I believe.

He didnt TAKE that lick from either of those songs. Sunshine of your Love was written in the 60's....


Ok I didn't mean a classic rock song. I meant like and old swing song or something, it sounds so familiar.

Next time don't jump on people so quickly before considering that existence did not being in 1967

I meant SRV uses the first lick of "Strange Brew" in "The Sky is Crying", I read the song you were thinking of wrong.

I see...

So single-note bends often remind you of old swing songs?

I think the start of the solo sounds a bit like 'blue moon'

it seems to fit the bit with the lines

'blue moon' I saw you standing alone........

if this rings any bells! please say!

I love that solo, I've tried and failed on a number of occasions trying to work it out. However, I think one of the problems I have is the speed and the way he bends off the notes, if any of you know what I mean.

I honestly find it to be an easy solo, but some people find somethings easy while others have trouble with them - everyone's a different player.

It's actually a really good solo, I think, and if you want to learn it just keep going at it.

Sit down and listen to the song a few times, and after a bit take out your guitar, split the solo into "sections", and try and learn each section before moving on.

Great advice, it's quite wierd really, I consider the first Comfortably Numb solo harder than the solo of Sunshine of your Love, yet, can play the CN solo perfectly. I'm quite a newbie with guitar, is it persistance, or what?
#16
That's really how I view guitar playing - persistence.

Of course, you need to get the basics down first before you can play anything, but once you're able to do the basic guitar playing techniques you can almost play anything.

Of course, playing and learning gets easier with time, and your sound will too, but if someone playing for one year whose been able to learn the techniques could learn the same thing as someone playing for three years could, but there will more than likely be a difference in quality and time to learn the song, but that is all due to lack of experience for the newer player and having experience for the older player.

The solo was based on the song "Blue Moon." If you haven't heard "Blue Moon," maybe you've heard another song based on it.

Listen to the Bob Dylan song "Bye and Bye" off of "Love and Theft".

"Bye and bye / I'm breathing a lover's sigh."

And then listen to the solo...weird.

Actually, it could be written by someone else, but I only have a version of his. It's quite good.
