I wanna improve my lead chops some, since I'm mostly just a rhythm player, and I've always been fascinated by blues solos. Trouble is, whenever I hear them, I can't remember the artist. Can anyone suggest me some good bluesy solos to learn?

maybe some BB King to get you started, then move on to more difficult solos as you go i guess. Wrong forum by the way :P

Why don't you do your own? Start with improvising with the pentatonic and work your way up. Listen to Hendrix, King, etc. You'll get a good feel for that kind of playing. Soon you'll be able shell out your own awesome solos.

Edit: How is this in the wrong forum? You can post whatever you want in the pit.

When in doubt, post in the pit. Yeah, it doesn't rhyme. Get over it.

Tbh, blues solos are usually improvised. it seems abit weird to learn a blues solo, hendrix always had such jammy songs
Yeah, they were almost always improvised. Though it always helps to learn licks from them.
I have a ponytail fetish.
..And a labcoat fetish. SCIENCE!
