Take it Away! Unlock the secrets of hot "take-off" lead guitar as played by the greatest players from the greatest bands. Western Swing master Joe Carr has transcribed the great guitar solos from the Bob Wills band and other greats and breaks them down note by note into useful licks that can be used to improvise original hot solos. Includes solos by western swing legends Eldon Shamblin, Jimmy Wyble, Leon Rhodes, Junior Benard (often called the first rockabilly) and more. The accompanying CD uses classic western swing song progressions and presents the licks at a medium, learnable pace. Written in standard notation and tablature.
