TOP THREE LICKS IN THE PIECE
Lick 1 Bars 11-20: in bars 13-14 the open fourth string is used as a pedal tone, the slide hammeringon and pulling-off just as a finger would. in bar 18 it’s used to play double-stops and this leads into some angling of the slide (bars 21- 23). it may feel that you need to put more angle on than expected.
Lick 2 Bars 21-32: in addition to angling the slide here again, Brett plays an incredibly tasty couple of e7 and a7 licks (21-32) in order to navigate the chords in the bridge section. These licks are well worth studying as they are eminently transferable to a good old-fashioned blues in either e or a.
Lick 3 Bars 33-40: Here Brett stretches out with more inventive ideas over the verse section. Keep a close ear (and eye) on the intonation when playing in the higher register – it can get a bit tricky up there, since the frets are so much closer together, therefore leaving much less margin for error.
