This week's lesson is on the solo section of Easy Baby. In reality there is no actual solo on the Cobra (label) version. What Sam does is do a worked out rhythmic part that leads back into the vocal on the four chord. Now if you are playing this live you may want to do a solo to make the song a bit longer. So, here is my way to do that. We do the rhythmic figure like the recording then solo on the rest of the verse starting on the 4 chord. After that verse we go back to the figure then go to the vocal on the four like the original recording. Brad Hallen and I did a track with this arrangement to give you a track to work it out to. Do have fun playing this one everyone and please keep posting your videos so I can see your progress. And if you want to sing, please go right ahead. I really do look forward to listening to all of you.

Great lesson, Duke! I love those ideas, that is so enlightening. All of those riffs sound impossibly hard until you explain them. Can't wait for a track to play with! Thanks a lot! Best, Bruce
