Haha, that'll make him feel great I'm sure...not exactly what I'd call advice though.

Do the imagine everybody naked thing. I don't know how it could possibly help, but it is fun.

Also, just run over it a couple times before the show. Work out the kinks, or try your best to imitate them.

Haha, my band played Sweet Home at our talent show a few years back and won all categories, meaning the winner AND the loser categories lol! Anyway, it depends if you're playing what Ed King played on the CD. Interesting story about the longer solo in the middle of the song: Ed King dreamed it! No ****, he dreamed it and then woke up and fricken' played it! Anyway, if you're improvising, three words: D major pentatonic! Minor works too, along with G major and minor pentatonic. If you're playing whats on the CD, then good luck man. The first little solo seems easy, but timing that can be a bitch!
