This lesson adds on to where we left off, starting on the second position to play on the changes. The basic blues box in second position is where a lot of the excitement is created in a modern blues solo. BB King should be credited with the combinations of notes used by most contemporary blues guitarists in this position. It's here where many of those great string stretches occur in his and many other blues guitarists solos (myself included). We also go over an easy and smooth way to get back to first position from the 2nd and different combinations of notes and riffs for this style.Topics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:
