Tom Waits "Yesterday Is Here"

Lesson description: This arrangement started out of my desire to transcribe Marc Ribot's solo on the Big Time version of "Yesterday is Here." Once I worked out the solo, I thought it'd be a neat exercise to see if I could fit Tom Waits' vocal stylings onto the guitar fretboard.

The solo itself shares a lot of similarities to Ribot's iconic solo to "Jockey Full of Bourbon," which is quite restrained, tastefully syncopated, and perfectly complements Tom's minor key chord changes.
