Learn to solo like SRV in the song Crossfire, no matter your skill level.
Crossfire** is a strange song; it’s rock, it’s blues, and you spend most of the time on the I chord. This presents an interesting problem - how do you solo over an unchanging chord progression without sounding boring?
That’s exactly what I wanted to tackle in the Stranded lessons. So many of the songs we love have chord changes that we can use to make the solo more interesting, but in Crossfire, there’s a relatively long section where we’re just playing over that grooving I chord rhythm. So, I’ve taken the significant themes Stevie used when playing Crossfire and extracted the parts that happen over the I chord. The resulting solos have all the power and soul you’d expect, and you barely notice that the rhythm part stays the same the entire way through.
This is the exact solo that you’ll learn in the Beginner lesson.
This is the exact solo that you’ll learn in the Intermediate lesson.
This is the exact solo that you’ll learn in the Advanced lesson.
