  • OK folks here we are with part 2 of my blues lessons. Last lesson (Blues Chord Soloing) we focus on chords and how to build them within a blues - now we are looking at soloing.

    The intention with this lesson is not for you to learn my solo - but to learn a series of licks which you can incorporate into your own improvisational arsenal. My solo was improvised so you need to know that if I did 20 takes, they would all be different. This is because I am improvising - in order to improvise you not only need to know the scales (words), but you also need some licks (sentences).

    Also I recommend that you learn the caged system as it helps to tie in any licks or scales with a chord shape. This is very useful when it comes to transposing a lick. This way you can learn 1 lick and be able to transpose it to any key. If you are unsure of the CAGED system then I implore you to delve into it.

    This lesson all the content is really on the other pages. Be sure to learn the various scales and be able to visually tie in the lick with the scale.

    Hope you enjoy it and see you soon!
