I'm committed to learning something about playing leads. I tend to grab a pentatonic scale and just flail away. I'm wondering if I can get some help. Let's take Althea. If I play an E minor bluesy thing (I'm not even sure that's right) I think it sounds OK but it doesn't nail it. Throwing notes in from the Bmin sounds good but at the wrong time it's awful. Any thoughts..I just don't know how to build a lead...how do you increase that tension...what creates that release. Nothing is too basic here.
If the thunder don't getcha then the lightning will!
