I've mentioned a couple of times that I ditched my face teacher because I just wasn't seeing or feeling the benefit for a variety of reasons. The biggest thing he did, in my opinion, was to introduce me to 3 or 4 good songs I had never heard before. One was Clapton doing Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out. So I started trying to learn that one about a month ago. I think I'm pretty comfortable with the accompaniment part of the song, so I've worked the last couple of week or so trying to come up with the guitar solo part of it. Here's the general idea of what I have so far with a couple of hiccups. Not sure I'm happy with it. I don't feel like I'm playing the same riffs, but I feel like I'm playing the same melodic ideas in both sections. And I feel like I should mention, I'm using the Clapton style and vibe, not trying to play what he played. Thoughts or ideas for it? What can I do different? I skip all the preliminary and cut straight to the break, so it starts right off.
