In this course, you’ll learn an intermediate blues solo in E. It’s a shuffle blues, and there are 23 really sweet licks in here. The tempo is at 120 beats per minute.
This solo is musical and realistic, like something a pretty good blues player might actually play. It’s not just a bunch of licks strung together, because that never sounds natural. Instead, the idea is to tell a musical story, and to get the listener’s attention, and simply make it sound good and real.
When I came up with the ideas for this solo, I was thinking a bit about Eric Clapton, and maybe you’ll notice. I think there are traces of Stevie Ray Vaughan here as well.
Overall, you’ll find several useful turnaround licks, blues scale licks, mixing the major and minor pentatonic, chord tone licks, triplet licks, chromatic passing notes, etc. Another thing you’ll see are double-stops, which are a really nice tool to use. There’s one lick where I bend and release a double-stop to make it sound really bluesy.
Everything is notated in both Tablature and Guitar Pro, and the backing track is available at different tempos, for ease of learning.
