Dolphinstreet Lessons / Re: Wind Cries Mary Lesson

I believe Jimi developed this style of playing on the southern Rythm and Blues circuit, playing with Little Richard, Curtis Mayfield, the Isley Brothers, and so on.  Maybe the guitarist had to fill a lot of space in these bands. 

Dolphinstreet Lessons / So Into You

Always loved the guitar part on this song - So Into You by the Atlanta Rhythm Section


I'd like to know how to play like this.  It seems like there's more than just chords and lead fills going on.  The outro is amazing.

For anyone who is good at this, this BBC version has some good shots of the Guitarist playing a Les Paul doing most of the guitar parts.  His solo/outro at the end is worth the price of admission.


Dolphinstreet Lessons / Midnight at the Oasis

Another classic song, with some cool and innovative guitar parts.  Does anyone have any clue what the guitarist is playing here (not the guitar, but chords and patterns)?   I once had some chords for the song - Major 7ths I think - but it didn't do justice to the actual guitar part.
I just found it on YouTube.  There may be different versions, but this one had acoustic and electric parts (with strings).  The electric is comping, playing some lead fills and really moving the song along.  Try this link:


I don't expect to be able to play everything in the song, but I would like to be able to get the feel. 

Dolphinstreet Lessons / Brown Eyed Girl

The recent lesson called Mixolydian - Sliding Run gives the same pattern used in the intro to Brown Eyed Girl, if you play it all on the E and B strings.  However, Robert gives the lesson in E Mixo, so you would have to play the song in E.  It is usually shown in G (Robert's version of the song plays it all above the 12th fret - I learned it all on the E and B, just like his Mixo lesson - moved up 3 frets.)
You could transpose his lesson to G and then you have the pattern included for the intro to the song in G, or use his lesson as is, and play the song in E. 
If you listen to the original song, besides some keyboard, the guitar is not strumming, but may be playing patterns similar to Robert's Mixo lesson.  If anyone knows how to do this, or what the guitarist is playing to "comp" the song, I would like to know.
