Brian May Demo 2

Lesson 2 : Lick 1 & 2

Let's get cracking with the first 2 licks from our solo! The song is based around the key of D major, so when in doubt, use your D major pentatonic! Digging in a little deeper though, here are the first 4 bars of the chord chart:

The first lick is based over the D major chord and A major chord, so we highlight the D major arpeggio (D shape) and the A major arpeggio (A shape). This really helps bring out the sound of those chords, whilst still playing in the key of D major.
