I posted that intro vid for this what seems like eons ago - figured I'd do the whole thing. A little sloppy here and there and yet again I was too lazy to add a rhthym track. pft...

Is that a Travel size guitar?
What brand/model?

I've been trying to become more fluent at solo'ing to this song.
Thanks for posting your vid.

Did you try the caged system ?

Bill
love the riff you do leading into the C#m ( and also the riff into the change that starts on D , too ).
Feel like tabbing it out sometime ?
Thanks as always.
Ps
Love the PInk Rangers shirt. Nice win last night. Flyers are sucking.

Oh Man... ya got me!
That is funny my Brutha!
(But seriously... CAGED to the rescue again!).

So far... I usually hit a quick Bm arppegio around the 14th fret position, then move quickly to E pentatonic, around the 12th fret area.
I have the studio version in mind, which to me is very basic solo'ing compared to later live versions... a good primer.

I've always played Bm - never knew it was thought to be Bm7.

It's full size and it's a Taylor 310-CE

Yea, becoming more fluent at everything is an ongoing process. I'm not at my most fluent :smile: here but hey, they all don't sail out of the park!

Is that a freshly shaved Billbbill? Making some room for your Rangers playoff beard? :)

Well, yes and no - freshly shaved w/o much hope of making any noise in the playoffs. They've been pretty disappointing this year. Scoring has been off and they're always either standing around picking their asses, or chasing guys around and accomplishing nothing in their own zone. It's maddening how many times attacking players are open in our zone - makes me want to scream at the tv!!!!

Which I do regularly...

Some lead thoughts here at this link

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1448


some verse tab below - also from the above thread - not sure how accurate it is to what I'm playing as it was about 2 yrs. ago.
Code: Select all
---------I.....Althea......feelin..lost
-------Bm--------A---------E--------A
e-----------------------------------
b--------------3---------2-------------
g-----------4--------2-----------1----
d---------4----4---2-----2--2-2--2----2-
a---0-1-2--------0------------------0----
E-4----------2---------0---0---0--------

-------------Lackin......direction-------OR
-------Bm--------A--------E------------|-E------
e--------------------------------------|-------
b--------------3--------2--------------|-------
g-----------4--------2----------1------|--1-2-0h1---1
d---------4----4---2----2--2-2--2--2-2-|--2-2-----2-2
a---0-1-2--------0---------------------|-----------
E-4----------2--------0---0---0---0----|-0---------0


Repeat for 'Althea told...' and "Back might..."

To bridge

---------I told.........treachery....was

b----------2-------2-------5-------5---
g----------2-------2-------6-------6---
d---------2---2---2---2---6---6---6---6---

E-4---------2-------0-----0--0-----0--

I show the alternating bass line in the last segment above. I don't show that on my thread with the intro although I mention it as an alternative. I'm also not too sure whether or not jer would play this riff while singing the last line. A quick look at some of my different versions don't have it. I put it in anyway. Without the riff it would pretty much mimic the end of verse segment. It's also not the easiest thing to sing and play at the same time.

Depending on whether you do a quicker or slower bass line walkup you can fit more or less in before starting the next sequence.

This is all basic finger picking stuff, although I flat, middle and index finger pick the whole thing.

jg messed around with this, often changing things up here and there.

I show both of the 1/2 phrase E endings, the picking out the E chord and the little hammer riff, because jg did both in various ways through the years. I've heard versions with it mixed and some where it seemed like the hammer riff ended every E phrase.


And then here's the link for the Intro vid w/tab
