Jimmy Bryant’s Four Star Session with Sammy Masters

I first heard these recordings back in the mid 80’s and they’re still at the top of my list of favorite ‘take off’ guitar playing. Bryant was so ahead of time. The other day I re-learned his ‘Some Like It Hot’ solo. I have no idea where he got the idea for the 4 bar lick he plays over the break. Maybe just an exercise? He plays something similar, out of the same pattern on ‘Rock City Boogie’. It’s cool whatever it is. My timing is off a bit and not as clean but here’s where I think he played it on the neck. Check out the original if you haven’t heard it lately.
