I would start with learning the actual melody on the harmonica first....this is where I've always begun when looking for original ideas for a song like this...sometimes just playing the melody with a few well placed alternate notes is a real crowd pleaser - the hook is that, while listening to this type of solo, they can not help but "sing along" in their heads while listening....you will have their attention

I have his part tabbed out if you want to take it and make some modifications to it. Let me know and I can email it to you.

Neil does play a bit of very straightforward harp on it, but not really what I'm looking for. Was wondering if anyone on this list has played this song in the past and has any suggestions. Thanks.
