24-BAR STUDY SOLO
CD TRACK 29
[Bars 17-20] The lick that starts in bar 18 is the sort of thing that many would associate with Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, AC/DC’s Angus Young or even Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page. This idea however is a classic T-Bone Walker lick and shows the massive influence he had on modern guitar playing. [Bars 21-23] It’s time for a flashy end lick and this one is challenging if you pick all the notes. You can add some pull-offs if you’d like to lighten the load. These licks are reminiscent of the kind of thing Eric Clapton played in the early part of his career, gleaned from players like Otish Rush and Freddie King. [Bar 24] The track ends with two chords - simple but hugely effective.
Bb9 These are simply a semitone approach from to A9, and you can hear their inflence in music as diverse as Elvis Presley (Jailhouse Rock) and Cream (almost every live ending they ever played!).
