This minimalist solo is a testament to Richie's ability to be a songwriter and producer first, and a guitar player second. His restraint and effective use of bends, rests, and repetition, gives the guitar a vocal quality that echoes the sentiment of the tune. To replicate some of his staccato phrasing, try using your fingers instead of a pick. Hope you enjoy the tab!
