There are a few common ailments I see with most new blues players (particularly when trying to solo)…
1. They play “in the basement” where they can’t be heard above the band…
2. They only play from the lowest note in the pattern instead of playing from the top, which is where many solos start and flow from.
3. They don’t phrase – at all – because a few beats of dead air seems like an eternity.
So I wrote a VERY simple solo for you that just basically goes through box 1 in A minor, but addresses those facets (as well as some others.)
If you struggle with counting, phrasing, timing, or any of the things I mentioned above, this might help with that.
And if you dig this, and it’s about at your level, but you’d like to step it up just a little (and play some real blues licks) then you might really dig my 5 Easy Blues Solos course.
