Hmm, that’s a tough challenge, will give it a try but don’t hold your breath this could take a while. :upside_down_face::roll_eyes::upside_down_face::astonished::cold_sweat:

I figured out the lick but where does it fits. I’m thinking Salt Creek and maybe John Henry…

That’s a really cool lick, but I’m gonna wait for the tab to learn it.

I worked out that lick on mandolin…now to figure out where to put it. Is there a tune like Big Mon except in the key of G ?

Harrison, the challenge is to learn the lick without the TAB

I guess I didn’t here the not in the video. Well, I’d better start working on it from the video. :man_facepalming::roll_eyes::wink:

For some reason I’m just now seeing this video… as I sit here with a mandolin around my neck. I’m not going to look at any submissions until I get something worked up. Cool lick!

I’m keeping it in G and adding a well known lick from Ben’s site.

I’ve got the notes figured out, and what I’m going to add. Won’t be till the end of the week or this weekend though, cause I won’t be getting a chance to practice.

It’s been crazy the last couple of weeks with the loss of my mother in law.

Anyone else working on anything?
