Hi
This is an example of what I am trying learn, using different BB King type licks over a backing track in Gmajor.

The BB King vibrato is still not in my fingers.. and some of the bends are are not perfect in pitch..

The King would be proud of you, that's the blues, make your guitar cry some more. Keep at it, good stuff, roll on! 8)

BB King's got an often imitated, but hardly duplicated touch. It's almost regal at times. You did pretty good, Caught the essence for sure. I can't do BB King no better than my dogs can do BB King. So that said, I enjoyed your jam. 8)
