Thanks for the link, but I've got the progression down--the guitar solo is haunting me however. I realize it's a pedal steel, but thought someone might have had it tabbed out for standard tuning. Guess it's back to the ol' ears 8)

Peace

One way is to play the notes within the chords, arpeggiated, skipped, embelished with chromatic runs and whatever, and yes I'm over simplifying this explanation-there are far more qualified theorist on this board other than myself...
Here's a crude example:
C C Gm F
E-------------------------------12---13---15/--17-\-15-----12-----------------------------10---15--15-14-13-12-13--13--12---------
B-------------------13---15---------------------------------------13----------------------11----------------------------------------15--13
G--------------12------------------------------------------------------12--------------12-----------------------------------------------
D---------14---------------------------------------------------------------14----------------------------------------------------------------
A----15------------------------------------------------------------------------15------------------------------------------------------------

God I suck at tabbing...hopefully you'll get the idea :?

You mean musically? If I had the chops some of you guys have, then maybe I'd give it a try :wink:
