Careless Love > Solo Breakdown

Here's the second solo chorus for "Careless Love". It's just variations on the melody beginning with some wah wahs. In the performance, note how the volume drops as this chorus begins. Dynamic changes like this are important in keeping the listener interested and establishing contrast.

Hi Boyd --- we have a backing track for Careless Love and Chicago Shuffle coming in the next couple weeks.  I agree --- this is a great tune and I love the way Jerry and Rick play it.
