Lesson notes

Soul Kitchen is a great song from The Door's self titled debut album, released in 1967. This song starts with a long introduction with a lot of note bending. It employs a common technique where you bend a note, but when you release it, you pull off to a note lower on the neck. It also uses a relatively uncommon dominant chord shape for the "A dominant sharp 9" chord. This is followed by double stopped sixteenth note slurs. It later incorporates a lot of string skipping and even some double stop bending, which is fairly difficult for the novice player and provides for a great practice opportunity to improve your chops.
