With our acoustic guitar playing the same chords and rhythm as our first A section, we leave plenty of space for the harmonica solo which we are going to learn how to play using a clean electric guitar.

First we start off with a slide from D to E that resolves to G on the high E string reinforcing the vocal melody. We will then reinforce that melody with a bend, grabbing the G note again followed by a second bend that resolves to C.

This is then followed by another lick starting on a high G on the G string which includes some cool chromaticism with a bend from F# to G. We will then play a blues style lick that goes from F# to E and resolves back to C.

Next, we start off back on C and then we will reinforce our beginning melody with some additional notes that resolves to C an octave higher. We will then sneak in another cool phrase with some bending from Eb to E, followed by a resolve back to C, A and G.

Over our outside sounding chords, we will start by playing a sixth interval from G to E followed by a melody on the high E string that resolves back to C again. Then for our last lick, which is A, F, G followed by a hard high E on the downbeat of 1 of the next measure.

This solo works really well on guitar, and with the acoustic playing our A section changes underneath, we have a really awesome part that takes us into last parts of our song.
