Format: Sibelius digital score with tabs & standard notation (2 pages)

Wilco's "Being There" is one of those records I can remember where I was when I first heard it. It was 1999. I was at a bar in Boston, MA filling out a job application to get a catering gig and "Why Would You Wanna Live" came on the house stereo - I was transfixed. The combination of old-timey instruments, Beatlesy chord progressions, and Jeff Tweedy's sincere and scratchy vocals had me.

Once I bought the record and listened to the heck out of it, I started to notice the creativity and talent of Jay Bennett. He was a great instrumentalist and arranger, and could play the sh*@t out of a guitar!

This solo is an excellent lesson applying the principles of pedal steel country guitar licks in a stones-ian context. Notice how many of the bends are not the typical blues bends. It's more about looking at a scale, and finding a way to use bends to move through it.
