Just a few points the records will be in no particular order. I recently had a flood and now all my records are sitting next to me in my jam room so I'll literally pick up each one in the pile as they come. If the piece is on Spotify I'll try to include a link so you can reference the music I am talking about. My inspiration may be from a particular song, technique, guitarist, title or even cover art. Remember the great album covers pre CD?

So first album in the pile is? Eric Clapton "Just one Night". This album was recorded live at the famous Budokan Theatre in Toyko in December of 1979 and released in 1980. I choose to listen to the song "Worried Life Blues". Clapton's version had a very BB King style sound to me. I tabbed out a guitar lick that would work over the turnaround. Please note I'm tuned down a half step if you want to play along with my video. Here is the song:

And here is the guitar tab for my lick:
