Eddie Taylor > Bad Boy Solo 2

Hi Friends, This weeks lesson is an extra solo chorus on Eddie Taylor's Bad Boy. We start by going up to the high A position on the 1st string playing a 7th double stop and coming down to the position we started the first chorus at. I also show riffs with slight bends that sound more like the Chicago guitarists of the fifties. I always gravitate towards the early style of playing for this type of thing where the bends are small and reflect a sound where guitars were strung with heavier strings. We finish off with more typical Eddie Taylor licks to add to your arsenal. Looking forward to seeing some posts from you playing this tune. Enjoy, Duke

Hi Scott, I could put a Robert Nighthawk tune on the list. That would be fun! Duke

OK.  Last summer I stumbled upon Robert Nighthawks material and I keep coming back to it on my ipod.  Don't suppose you could bring some of that out in a Blues-a-Rama?

Hi again Duke,

How do you get that great tone?  What pickup/settings/amp are you using to get that sound?

Thanks

Hi Duke,

I've fallen way behind, but I'm definitely skipping to here.  This lesson is the perfect answer to my "How to practice soloing" question.  What a *nasty* solo :-D

Thank you.
