Getting Out of Town

Verse 2, I Chord

We're re-issuing one of Rick's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Rick: 

This week we'll be working on the first 4 bars of the 2nd verse of "Getting Out Of Town". It incorporates a couple new musical devices into the mix - double stops (or in Paul Oscher's lexicon, "intentional slop") and slurs or short glissandos (which to me is just another version of intentional slop). There's also one simple-sounding, slightly tricky little draw-to-blow-with-a-half-step-bend transition for you to have fun with!

Rick, this reminds me a lot of Bye Bye Bird. In fact, the spacing of the lyrics in relation to the licks seems to fall on the same beats. I think practicing this is going to give me better ears on figuring out that song.

Absolutely. This is also a Sonnyboy 2 song.
I got the idea of doing the song like this from a version he did on a European LP
