Sonny Boy Williamson (Rice Miller) lick
This lick evaded me. Whenever I thought about it there was no Sonny Boy tape around and when there was, Sonny played it too fast. Since I only play in the car it's hard to stop and rewind or even concentrate. Finally I had a minute alone with Gary Primach and he wrote it down for me.
This is the lick in "Help Me" and other songs where Sonny boy plays a little up down and around repeated thing that sounds so neat. I've heard Cotton and others do it also.

On the same page of my notebook was this good 4 note repeating lick from Sonny Boy.
