..I do not like copying other people's solos, but there is one exception:
Robbie's solo on Blowing in the wind from Before the Flood. I have pretty much
worked out the double stops, but the licks and the nuances completely escape me.
..Play the notes, double stops etc. with your eyes and fingers
- Play the nuances
with your heart and soul - 'licks' will be the
natural result/consequence - you don't want THOSE things to
be Robbie's anyway, do you? .. Don't you want your solo to
be an obvious tip-o'-the-Hat to Robbie, but an expression
of your own? That's the difference between imitation and
paying a 'Respect' - you don't honor an Artist w/ a paint
by number picture, you do it with 'Style'. ....
