A lot of students want to know how to play and improve their blues lead solos, and that’s why I put together this 5-part miniseries of lessons for you on how to play a blues guitar solo. If you missed the first three lessons, I recommend checking them out below...
Lesson #2 - The KEY To Creating Great Blues Solos
Lesson #3 - Major Pentatonic Scale: The Flavor Injector
In Lesson #4, I'm going to show you a trick I like to use over the "quick" chord changes during the last few measures of 12-bar blues.
What’s the “trick”?
It’s as simple as playing a dominant 7th arpeggio. I find it really helps to emphasize the chord changes of those last few measures. I don’t play this every single time, mind you, but I’ll sprinkle it in from time-to-time to mix things up.
Give this some practice and in no time, you’ll have yet another tool to add to your blues guitar tool belt.
