Seriously. One of my favorite solos... of all time!

I love the way he weaves blues, bop, ‘three against two’, and SO MUCH SOUL with his impeccable time and huge sound in this 5:14 clip. I'm willing to bet you’ll dig it too…

Don’t forget to check out Troy’s website. He’s releasing new music all of the time. (His latest, Perspective, is now available for pre-order.)

Join his mailing list today so you won’t miss out!

That’s it for today. Hope you enjoy the transcription!

Happy Shedding!
