solo

(with slide)

*this is an improv solo with a slide, have fun and experiment with it.
 another note: the left and right channels on the cd have two different
 solo parts, you might want to listen to each channel seperatly to get
 a different feel for the picking and positioning of the slide*

second solo

(with wah)

*adlib slightly with the wah, there's some holds and flutters in there. The
written rythmn is not exact. This another one of Adam's 'feel' solos.*
