    I do not know any xmas songs at all. I dont need anything complicated or even bluesy. How about a song to get us out of 2020 please?

    Los Lonely Boys do a killer SRV-style cover of this one. Yep, love me some Texican rock and roll. I actually started playing it last year - not necessarily the wah solo that Henry throws in, but box 1 (or box 4) works great in that spot to throw down some solo action. If you've got that lesson learned from BGU (or just need to work on it some more), this is a pretty easy one to pick up. Key of E with only 4 chords (E, C#m, A, and B) and basic walk-ups from one chord to the next. Oh - they also throw in a Beatles IV chord at the end.
