    The "feel" is definitely part of what makes the solo challenging. Larry Carlton has a unique "soft" touch. It's really difficult to appreciate what he does until one tries to replicate it.

    Definitely!

    When I slowed it down it allowed me to absorb each note a little more. Each note is perfectly played with an incredible amount of 'personality' behind each note. The song isn't fast but it's fast enough that if you don't match that precision you won't recover from that duff note. Bit of a finger twister!

    I've got most of the technical bits down but need to spend more time on the feel and vibe. There are a lot of little gems in that solo!

    That's why it's considered to be one of the most iconic solos in the history of rock. Here's an excerpt from Guitar Player:
