Ain't too proud to beg - solo - Help!

The very first part of it. Can't nail it. I'm close, but something's missing. Something wrong with the voicing of the chords. Effects?

Help any one?

In this magazine, that solo is rated as the 8th worst guitar solo ever.
[www.guitarworld.com]


"Keith Richards says he never understood why Mick Taylor left the Rolling Stones, but this horrendous, lurching and sputtering solo might have had something to do with his exit. Was Taylor angry with Richards for ruining an otherwise decent cover of a Motown classic? Was he too proud to beg to play the solo himself? Or was he just plain tired of playing with a group he considered rank amateurs? “I couldn’t believe how bad they were,” Taylor has said of the group. “Their playing was out of tune, and they sounded like a garage band. I often wondered how the Stones could make hit records.” Maybe it was only rock and roll, but Taylor apparently didn’t like it, and he bailed from the Stones less than two months after this record came out."

OK, fair enough, it ain't exactly fluid or melodic, but I truly love this solo. It has something. The tone, the dissonances, it just sticks in my mind.

Usually I get around it playing some odd solo in b major pentatonic, but every time I do so, something is missing! So yesterday I tried to understand what to do. As I said, I'm close, but can't nail it. That is to say, I'm miles away ...

Maybe you should try to play it while on heroin?
