Learn the Guitar Solo in Horse With No Name

This blog post is a tutorial on how to play the guitar solo in Horse With No Name by America on guitar.

While the rhythm guitar parts of Horse With No Name are relatively tame, the guitar solo in this song is anything but.

This solo is given a 5/10 difficulty rating because it uses alternate picking, slides, and requires some fancy fretwork. Therefore, I recommend that you attempt it only if you've learned about 15 guitar solos already.
