Thank you for the kind words, and also for some inspiration. I've been planning on starting a lick series, which I've titled "Bona fide licks", but was struggling on where exactly to begin. After reading your comments and suggestion on breaking down the extended jam over the vamp of "Lonesome and a Long Way from Home", I thought it would be cool to cherry pick some licks from different vamps (starting with this one), which over time could end up being a breakdown of sorts of these jams/vamps.
The first lick I chose came from the 6:25 mark on "Lonesome and a Long Way from Home". I think this is a super cool lick and can be used in a variety of situations. It would sound great over a static C7, C9, or C13 vamp. Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/eJOBS5p1mxI
Again, thanks for your comments!
