In this 2-part lesson we are going to cover Ray Manzarek’s epic solo on the Door’s song: Rider’s on the Storm. There are many great tips to gain from this solo and it is a great example of how to build a solo using few notes and rhythmic elements. Using the A dorian scale, this lesson will also give you pointers on how to improvise using your dorian mode. Part 2
