  I'm a beginning guitarist and trying to learn Hideaway by ear.
Regarding the opening lick -

                        B B Dflat E  (slide up to) G

Is that E played on the open E string or the 5th fret of the B string?
It sounds like a ringing open E string...but I seem to remember a film
of Freddie King playing it on the 5th fret of the B.  Or is there some
type of bend involved? Thanks...
