Thanks, jtr for the , uh, lead & thanks, Bucksstudent, for the "GPS".

Interesting site.

 

To be honest, though, I'm having a hard time shaking the idea that, b/c of the style, the final solo's not DA....but as said, if I knew for sure I wouldn't be asking.

It's not the song that's important (BTW, age has nothing to do w/ the value or interest of music, does it ?).

 

What I'm tryna do is trace a particular lick.

The one discussed here as a "4 1/2 step Al King style bend"

[*].

It shows up, in slightly varied form during the AAB's' version of Stormy Monday [4:25] during what's generally credited as a solo by Duane.

It's not identical but close enough to be the same idea.

I just find it an real "earworm" have been tryna figure out which it was.

 

---------------------------------------------------

[*] BTW, I let this go earlier but a 4 1/2 step bend would be a full 6th, so I presume that measurement's supposed to be 4 1/2 fret....

I don't know for certain either, but my impression has always been that the first two were Duane, the last one was Dickey.

 

As far as the bend, I think Dickey was probably just as much a fan of Albert King as Duane was.
