White Rabbit Guitar Lesson
In 1967 the so-called ‘Summer Of Love’ took place in California, specifically in San Francisco. The Jefferson Airplane was one of the main bands that were part of a developing sound now considered Psychedelic Rock. *White Rabbit*was written by Grace Slick while she with another band, The Great Society, and it is certainly one most identified with the time. It uses an unusual set of 6 major chords set to a hypnotic, bolero –type rhythm, an eastern-influenced opening lead played by Jorma Kaukonen, and fantasy lyrics based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland. In the lesson we look at both the rhythm and lead guitar parts.
