Blues Land by Jerry Reed – Solo Guitar by Neil Hogan
I have been messing with Jerry Reed’s Blues Land for quite a while now and it is finally starting to take shape. One of the obstacles was that the original was done with a back up band, and maybe even multiple guitars so I had to come up with some ideas as far a creating a solo arrangement.
There are some pretty unusual techniques as well, including a lot of grace notes and what I might call a thumb drag, a quick backwards brush with the thumb across just a few strings. Maybe a lesson on this someday but I don’t really have any of it written out yet.
