"Comfortably Numb" Solo 1

Hi fam,

Welcome to this guitar solo lesson. This time we are looking at the first solo of the Pink Floyd song “Comfortably Numb”. You can watch the video and download the lesson pdf and mp3 jam track here on this page.

This is an excellent solo to dig into if you want to learn how to get past using only pentatonic scales to play over chord progressions. Have fun, and let me know if you have any questions or guitar solo lesson requests.
