Learn Stevie Ray Vaughan- Pride and Joy Solo Edition

Due to a request from a reader I’m posting the solo to this song.  If by chance you missed the first part of the lesson with the rest of the song you can find it here.

Pride and Joy- Stevie Ray Vaughan

(click to enlarge)


If you look at the tab you’ll notice that I’ve put in some red numbers.  These are places that might be a little hard to play and/or figure out whats going on. I’ll go over all of them now.

1-To play this part use your index finger on the B string and your middle finger on the G string.  It should look like a mini staircase.  This shape is used through-out the solo so get it down now.

2- In the next section of the solo, it’s just some bending.  Bend the notes with your middle and ring fingers while your index finger holds down the 12 fret notes.

3- Here slide down quickly from the 12th position all the way down the neck.

4- The tab here says that you slide up to the 17th fret. It really doesn’t have to be that exact. He does it more for a sound effect then to get a specific tone.  Just slide up and down the neck fast, Hendrix style.

5- Here use the mini staircase shape again to play this lick easier.

6- This part is just like the beginning of the song.

7-10- The last 4 numbers are all licks where you can use the mini staircase shape to make this a lot easier for yourself.

  2. Dear Teach,

    I love your work. But I can’t print out this solo with clear definition on my computer. Are the notations for SRV’s solos in print somewhere?
