This week folks we learn the most classic of all R&B guitar solos. We will attempt the first verse which is deceptively simple. Believe me, to really play this solo correctly takes a lot of right hand control to do all the picking. For me, at my age now it's not so easy anymore but to learn it right, the way Billy Butler played it will certainly be rewarding! Billy's double stops with alternating picking on the 5 and 4 chords is a beautiful thing. Let's have some fun with this one!
