In this video lesson i show you note by note how to play Steve Rothery’s guitar solo from the 80’s classic song Kayleigh

 

Kayleigh” is a song by the British neo-progressive rock band Marillion. It was released as the first single from the concept album Misplaced Childhood. It was the band’s most successful single in the UK, where it peaked at number-two and stayed on the chart for a total of 14 weeks. It also became the band’s most successful single worldwide, reaching the top 10 in the Republic of Ireland, Norway and France, reached no. 1 in Poland, and became the band’s sole appearance on the United States Billboard Hot 100, hitting number 74 in October 1985

The guitar hook line through the verse came about, according to Steve Rothery, from him demonstrating to his then-girlfriend what effects a chorus and a delay pedal could add to a guitar’s sound. Rothery recorded the song on a chorused Stratocaster guitar, using the pick and his second and third fingers to play it. The album version contained an extended guitar solo by Rothery, 27 seconds of which is edited for the single version.
