Stray Cats - I Wont Stand In Your Way tab

Here's the beautiful solo Brian Setzer crafted for this song. In the Key of Eb.

This is deceptively complex. It's a very different kind of solo than we see much of 
anymore.It's almost entirely based on chord shapes. The funny thing is that it sounds like

it could easily be 30 years older than it is, but I can think of any classic doo wop 
songs that have this kind of solo. In a sense, it's thoroughly traditional and modern.

Smoothness is critical. Morphing from chord to chord is the key to playing this 
correctly - and it's hard to do. What may come very natural for Brian Setzer is very difficult

for most of we mortals. To get the timing correct, try to think of this as a series of 
small patterns rather than one long thing. Break it into pieces. Basically, every time 
you see an indication to hit the trem bar, that's the end of a pattern.

Enjoy.
