Freeborn Man is a straight up barn burner instrumental, the type of tune that every picker loves to play to show off their stuff. I've transcribed a solo by Mark O'Connor from a live performance by bluegrass All Stars, including Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Tony Rice, Bela Fleck and Mark Schatz. He takes two rides on the tune. This thread is for the first solo, I'll also post the licks for the second solo.
I've broken this lesson up into a series of lick videos with each video covering a separate lick so that you can go straight to the one you want. Enjoy!
