Solo 2 - CD 60 (mp3 click here)

TAB Solo 2

Solo 2 is in the key of Bb, a key favoured by horn players. In bar 2 you see the same kind of approach to the #3 of the I chord we've seen in solo 1. Play the 6th fret of the 5th string with your index finger and slide back.

Note the mix of b3 and #3 in bar 3, play it with confidence.

Bar 5 uses a rollover with your ring finger.
The bends in bars 8 and 9 are 1/4 note bends and actually approach the #3 of the V chord.

The slides in the beginning of bar 9 are very cliche. On the V chord this note is often played with a lot of emphasis, because it really stands out (it's the 5 of the V chord). The lick in bar 12 plays around with the whole F7 chord, try to let all notes ring.

Accompaniment: Chord Riffs and Horn lines example 1 & 2 (mind the key: Bb)
