In this tutorial you'll learn how to play the classic song "Rocky Mountain Way", as made famous by Joe Walsh. This song is full of great bluesy guitar playing, and in this tutorial we're gonna break down every note that is played on the track. There are the rhythm parts in open tuning, the short slide solos in the intro and after each chorus, the break down with the Talk Box solo, the rockin' slide solo that goes on while the track fades, and much much more.

All the solos certainly aren't easy, but if you are somewhat familiar with the basic slide technique, they can be the perfect next step. And, don't worry if you don't have a talk box. You can always just sing along with the phrases you're playing, or even just play the notes without the effect.
