Joe Walsh Style Rock Licks

Three Joe Walsh Style Rock Licks

jimmy pageJoe Walsh is a master of Classic Rock guitar as heard in his work with the James Gang, The Eagles and of course his solo work. As well as being an excellent conventional rock guitarist, he is also widely regarded as an outstanding slide player.

Walsh’s work with the Eagles is of particular note (the album ‘Hotel California’ is considered one of his finest achievements with the group) as well as his other single recordings such as ‘Rocky Mountain Way’ and ‘Life’s Been Good’. The three sample lines below are designed to demonstrate a little of his approach to Classic Rock soloing.

These lines are taken from a book published by the Fundamental Changes music publishers and now available on Amazon. ‘100 Classic Rock Licks for Guitar’ also includes many ‘in the style of’ lines by other legendary Classic Rock guitarists, ranging from Ritchie Blackmore through to Angus Young of AC/DC.
