I've been trying to play Buddy's ride on Whiskey River. I kind of get it but it seems I'm in the wrong voicing. If somebody has the tab I sure would love it. Been playing the song for 35 years and never tried to play the solo like the record. In fact I played with The Whiskey River Band for a large percentage of my career and never tried to learn it. Any way here goes.
