A strange revelation

Before I jump into story time, check out this post to see what these transcriptions are all about!

I was over with my friends at Band Box in Risca, South Wales this week and it was brought to my attention that I don’t remember how to play any Mr. Big songs! I’ve loved this band since I first heard them in my teens, and the Lean Into It album is one of my all time faves!

I chose Lucky This Time because, despite it being a cover, it really shows off what the band is about. Plus, the solo is epic!

What to watch out for

This solo is fast, but it’s mainly pentatonic with a bit of blues scale thrown in for good measure. If you set your mind to it and start slow, you’ll definitely be able to nail it!

There are a couple of runs that are a bit awkward to finger, because they hop across strings in an odd way. Look out for bar 5 and bar 7 in particular for this!
