Johnny B Goode ain't blues. Try The Thrill is Gone by B.B. King, the solo isn't very long though. Most stuff by B.B. King is pretty slow, and Buddy Guy has some cool solo as well.

Listen to Stevie Ray Vaughan - not exactly long slow solos but if ur trying to get into blues..........stevie is the man. You might find a slow solo, depends on how slow your talking about. Like Californication solo slow?!? or slow compared to Michael angelo batio solos?!

Pretty much any Gilmore-era Pink Floyd has nice, slow bluesy solos in em, like Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2. BB King songs have good solos in em as well, and they also have some good fill riffs to learn.

i'll play the blues for you - albert king
poontang - instrumental
deep down in florida - muddy waters
the thrill is gone - bb king
high water everywhere - joe bonamassa
depression blues - melvin taylor and the slack band
just playing my axe - buddy guy

i could go on for a while. you could just slow these down, or play them at normal speed, because theyre not really technical solos.

Cross to Bear and Stormy Monday by The Allman Brothers Band. Duane Allman is the best blues guitarist imo. those are his two best slow blues songs, check out all of clapton's stuff too, the name "slowhand" came from somewhere. B.B., T-bone Walker and Muddy Waters are some other artists you should check out that havent been mentioned

Actually the name "Slowhand" came from him being so quick. And when he had to replace string on stage, he would do it himself, and people would slowly clap him.
Hence, "Slowhand" Clapton.
