B.B. King solo - Sweet Little Angel - Live at the Regal

Here's one of my favorite solos of all time.  B.B. King Live at the Regal from 1964.  It's a slow 12 bar blues in the key of Db.  He does take 2 solos in this track, but this is the transcription of the first one.  Click here to listen to the song.  Enjoy
