I recently downloaded a backing track to which the Freddie King track "Someday after a while" could be played over but have run up against some problems with soloing over it. I can solo ok over 4/4 time but found it difficult on this track which seems to count something like "1 and 234 and". I have a book of the transcriptions from EC's "From the Cradle" where it says the track is in 12/8 time and although his version is in the key of D while the track I have is in G I managed to transpose it and although I can play the rhythm guitar part and also figure out a melodic solo over it I find it near impossible to play the type of solo that EC or Freddie et al would play over this track. Are there any tips or tricks to playing in this time signature. It is slightly slower than the Clapton version but I am still finding this very difficult. Appreciate any help offered.
