Hi all,

I've recently decided to expand my styles of playing and I've started to have a profound liking of blues lately. So what are some good solos that are a must-know for blues players? Nothing incredibly hard, though.

And I'm really familiar with the pentatonic scales and blues scale.

Thanks.

try some bb king, the thrill is gone has some good licks, as does so many roads so many trains by otis rush. also check out some john lee hooker and early fleetwood mac, when peter green was with them, imo their black magic woman beats santana's all over

Start with some Clapton, Stevie Ray, Buddy Guy, Albert King, BB King, and Muddy Waters is also good

the beatles' "while my guitar gently weeps" is pretty bluesy. the solo is awesome.

All of van halens playing is derived from blues... If you wanna look into some more advanced sounding lead, definately look into eddies playing.


Clapton is great, as well as SRV.
