Blues about Miss So 'n So, and the sun got the Blues 'bout me. 

Solo 
He plays around 1 note (!) doing full, half and quarter bends. 
To keep the tab in a comfortable length, I've used (only for this song) 
bf for a full-tone bend, 
bh for a half tone bend, 
bq for a quarter tone bend and 
hb for hold bend, that means pick the string after bending it. 
It's a good idea to practice these bends before playing the solo. I think it's impossible to 
make an absolute exact tab of this solo, you must listen to the record... 

OK, now let's try it:

(If you have problems with the scale at this position, you can also play it like

Third verse 
(Played same as first) 

(I got) mean things, 
I've got mean things all on my mind. 

Little girl, little girl, 
I've got mean things all on my mind. 

Is to leave my baby, 
cause she treats me so unkind.
