Funky Blues Solo


The main scale used for the solo is the D Blues Scale in three positions. These shapes are used exclusively, except in bar 11 where a B note is added for the double stop lick.

Although on a first listen this solo may sound simple, the techniques used can be quite difficult to execute fluently; there are whole-tone bends (2 frets’ worth!) and a sweep-picking lick in bar 5, so you’ve got your work cut out for ya!

As always, below the YouTube video you’ll find the backing track to play along with, and below that, the tablature. Aren’t I nice?!

Feel free to ask questions or just share your thoughts in the comments!
