In this lesson, I demonstrate how to intertwine both first and second position playing to make a good flowing blues solo on "How Long." More info on blues lick possibilities here. Also I talk about timing and the value you give to each note and breaking up your phrasing to be musically interesting and emotionally powerful at the same time. I demonstrate a solo and invite you to play along while I play rhythm guitar for 3 choruses here. I also made a full backing track for you to play along with! Enjoy!Topics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:
