About the solo:
This solo vamp is fun to play over. It’s a bar of 5 & 6 to total 11 beats.

About the song:

‘The City Lights’ was written and inspired by the many late night red-eye flights that I’ve taken to get home from a long tour run. There’s nothing like the feeling of flying over your hometown and seeing all of the beautiful street lights before you land.

Enjoy!
L.
