    Here are a couple of runs to kick off the thread and hopefully help some out. Look forward to sharing.

    This run is close to what JB does:
    ------------------------12--15--14------14----12----------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------12---15------------------15--------------15----12-------15---12------------------------------------
    12---14------------------------------------------------------------14--------------14----12-------14----12------
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------14-------------12-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here is another run with a basic framework to get the gist of the 5 pattern. There are many many options within it to make it your own.

    7-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ---10---7-----------10---7-------------7--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------9---7-----------9---7---------9---7---------9---7------------7---------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------9--------------9---7--------9---7---------9---7-----------9---7--------------7-----------------
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------9-------------9---7-----------9---7----------9---7---------
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------10-------------10--7--

    This is a very nice Bonamossa trademark lick. It's all triplets that I grouped for easier computer tab reading. It's two bars long.

    ** the 7(9) has just one quarter note value (1/3 of a triplet.
    The 5-(6) is the last note of the 3rd beats triplet bending into a regular quarter note on the 4th beat.

    Other than that play it around 170 - 180bpm to get the JB effect.

    ---------------------------------------------------l--5---------5------------------------
    -8-5-------8-5-----------------------------5--l-----8-5------8-5-------5---------
    -------7----------7-----5-7-------5-7(9)----l-------------------------7----5---(6)
    --------------------------------7-----------------l---------------------------------------
    ---------------------------------------------------l---------------------------------------

    Hi, All I have is my phone and your "strings" in the tab are too long and are wrapping around to make two lines for each string making it look like you have 12 strings and impossible to read. Could you take half the lick and start it on a new line so it won't wrap.
    Hope that's not too confusing. Thanks :)

    We should try using [*code] before the tab and [*/code] at the end (remove asterisk). This may help if your using a phone. It allows left-right scrolling.
