In this lesson we will play a standard 12 bars blues solo in A7.
I also added the F7 in the chord progression so you will be forced to adapt your phrasing to the harmony.
It's really useful in order to start to "see" and recognize different patterns and chord shapes on your fretboard!
If you can play chords over a song, then you are also able to improvise on it. How? Recognizing at least the important degrees such as like the 1st, 3rd and 7th!
In this solo I use a lot of different techniques especially hybrid picking, bending and alternate picking. Be sure to practice it with a low gain in order to be able to play it as clean as possible! Remember to play it slow and to figure out the chord shape before practicing it at the normal speed.
Using the hybrid-picking you will learn to control your fingers and your right hand in general.
Of course, pay attention to the timing.
