I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water > Solo

Hi Everyone,

Today we are working on some fills to play around the first two vocal choruses then we learn the solo. It's more challenging than I remembered! I recorded it probably a dozen or so years ago and the double time part is tough for me! Maybe you'll get it easier than me! But anyway it's fun and the other point is more that you really learn to play the style rather than my exact solo. But it's a good place to start for sure.

Send me some videos once you have a grip on it.
