                       CALL ME THE BREEZE   -  by J.J. CALE

 This is an anthology tune (You will find a MP3 demo at the url above). 
 It was the first one of the first JJ Cale's album in 1972  ('Naturally')  
 and  was released also in a few others among which  'The Very Best of JJ Cale'. 
 It has been covered by Lynyrd Skynyd.
 It is Rock'n'Roll tinged with Country.  There are three guitars and a bass.
 The solo is particularly interesting . Here we step out far from the pentatonic 
 path. Not only the blue note is there but also all the colours of the rainbow.
 I tabbed the three guitars : two rhythm guitars and the solo guitar . 
 I also tabbed the bass .

 The tune consists of four verses of 12 bars, the third being only instrumental.
 The solo plays all along , punctuating each sung sentence and naturally all along
 the third verse.  The tonality is F sharp. ( F# , B and C#)

 All guitars are in standard tuning.

The first rhythm guitar is called LEAD RHYTHM in my tab. It is supposed to be 
played with a CAPO at the SECOND FRET.
It is played in a very classical manner with the little finger doing all the job.
To play it fast enough you have to alternate downstrokes and upstrokes.

The second rhythm guitar is called CLEAR RHYTHM  here.  It is played on the 4 
first strings. 

The solo guitar is slightly overdriven. ( Or more according to your personal taste.)
You will first find the tabs for the first 3 instruments  ( 2 rhythms and bass) 
for the 12 bars that keep repeating 4 times in the course of the tune with very 
few variants. That is to say all 4 verses are played the same way for those 3 
instruments.


LEGEND :

    h  : hammer-on
    p  : pull-off
    /  : slide-up
    \  : slide-down
    ^^ : let ring
    (n): optional
    >>>: strum quickly
    XbY   : bend at the X fret until it sounds like Y   ( X < Y )
    XrY   : release at the Y fret from the X sound ( X > Y : 
            you start from the bended position )
    Xb    : bend moderalety 
    n__   : linger on this note (rough way of noting rhythm !)


You will find first the 12 bars with the two rhythm guitars that you use all
along the tune.  Then the complete solo.
