does billy gibbons uses scales or 12 bar blues and any blues boxes to compose his riffs and solos?
personally i think some of them are pretty cool.

Make sure your beat is a beat you can drive ur car too.

Make sure you have a classic distortion/od.

Act cool when you play.

It's not so much in the musical ideas themselves, but more as how they are presented.

It must sound "Cool" in the blues/rock way of cool.

You can't make a ZZ Top song without the belt buckle guitar strap they use.
If you don't have that, you may as well give up already.
