Mean Old World > Solo and Ending

We're re-issuing one of Jerry's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Jerry: 

Here's the breakdown of the solo for "Mean Old World". At 5:17 I ask you to figure this section out for yourself. Remember: sing the riff and this will help you figure out the correct notes, where they are on the harp, and which are bends. The goal is to just hear and play. As you become more proficient and associate various notes to where they are on the harp you'll be getting closer and closer to just hearing and playing instinctively.
