Key to the Highway

Solo, First Chorus

Key to the Highway - 1st chorus of solo. There's a lot of hand action here - "wah wahs" and "fanning the harp". When you're letting that note rise back up from a bend in combination with the wah wah, do it slowly so there's a feeling of tension in it. Hand techniques are more pronounced when playing acoustic and can really put that human expressiveness into what you're playing.
