    After doing the latest challenge in BGU Labs and that being at 115 bpm. I took a look at this solo and it is around 160 bpm. Should even bother trying to play this. I am at around 100 - 110 bpm in the chalenge. This seems way out there. Griff if you would please...

    In my book it's 174bpm Swing Shuffle, that's pretty smokin when you get to the triplets

    I think if you can master the later solo's of "Soloing Without Scales" you'd be a Blackbelt Blues Player. However, even if you can play them at the 115 bpm, you can use them in a different song. You could also learn 24 bars of your favorite part of the solo and use that at a jam session. Just thinking out loud.
