Sonny Boy Williamson (Rice Miller) lick
This lick evaded me. Whenever I thought about it there was no Sonny Boy tape around and when there was, Sonny played it too fast. Since I only play in the car it's hard to stop and rewind or even concentrate. Finally I had a minute alone with Gary Primach and he wrote it down for me.
This is the lick in "Help Me" and other songs where Sonny boy plays a little up down and around repeated thing that sounds so neat. I've heard Cotton and others do it also.
|Repeat until you turn blue|
On the same page of my notebook was this good 4 note repeating lick from Sonny Boy.
The exception will be the riffs where the little menu comes up and it allows you to play in first or third position or correct the key. You still will use a "C harp, but they song key will be "C" or "D" accordingly.
