I have always loved this theme and decided to rework it in G tuning. Although it's a basic 12 bar blues, my idea was to blur the lines between something poignant and something bad-ass. I do this by playing with both the major third and minor third of the chords in both the verse and solo.
In the verse I'll stick to my anchor position around the 12th fret and pay careful attention to the vibrato to add a Leslie effect to the melody. I'll also use ghost notes ringing out behind the slide to get more texture to set up the solo.
