A bona fide twang-guitar legend shares stories of his time with Clapton and gives an inside look at how he approaches his signature sound.

Albert Lee is a contradiction. He’s a British guitar hero who has probably done more to influence American guitar styles than nearly anyone. While Lee is a stone-cold country picker, he’s spent quite a bit of time in mainstream rock circles including a stint in Clapton’s band. And Lee made his name through using an old Tele, his Ernie Ball Music Man signature model has been his go-to for decades. Before his show at Nashville’s City Winery with Laurence Juber, John Bohlinger sat down with the legend himself.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
