Learn to solo like SRV in the song Mary Had A Little Lamb, no matter your skill level.
Mary Had A Little Lamb is a tricky song, but not in the way you might think. It’s a bit of funk, rock, and blues all mixed. The tempo makes it unsuitable for playing fast, and the 4/4 beat means you can’t use your standard swing-based licks. To keep up, you need to change how you approach soloing.
You’re left with a song that seems easy, but when you begin to push yourself, it presents a new kind of difficulty that you don’t encounter in other 12-bar blues songs. The Mary’s Lamb lessons capture the funkiness, the soulfulness, and some reasonably complicated syncopated licks that Stevie played live and in the studio.
