This is an easy 48 bar long solo, over a typical standard blues shuffle, played in the key of A.
The solo is fairly easy to play, because there aren’t any fast movements in there. I’ve also avoided more challenging techniques, so you can focus on the notes. However, I have included three simpler techniques – slides, half-step bends, and vibrato. These techniques will make the licks sound better, and they are easy to learn.
- The 5 Blues Boxes – I have included neck diagrams and explanations for what these are.
- You will use the 5 Blues Boxes for this solo, and there are several licks that will show you how to go from one box to the next.
- The presentation is very clear, with Tab on screen, and solo and licks at full and half speeds.
- Each lick is broken down individually, and I explain it all for you in detail.
- I have a bar progression counter, so it’s easy to see where in the chord progression I’m playing each lick.
- The mp3 files included have the solo at full and 75% speed, and I have included the backing track in 2 different tempos as well.
- There are chapter markers for each lick – very easy to locate any lick.
- I explain the gear I used for this lesson.
