This arrangement of Wild Bill Jones is based on the playing of Charles Sawtelle, guitarist for the legendary band Hot Rize! He does a great job of clearly stating the melody. He doesn't come in guns blazing, and the hot licks show up after the melody has been established. "Not showing all your cards" is a great way to craft a solo.
