Watch the Slide On Up online guitar lesson by Matthieu Brandt from 50 Jump Blues Licks You MUST Know

Jump blues guitar requires you to move with the chords. Which means that when the harmony changes - from the I to the IV chord for instance - the licks you can play also change. Which in turn means that you need to know where the roots are of the chords you are soloing on at all times during your soloing. This also means a higher awareness during your solos and a bit more studying than you might be used to. In this lick you can hear the advantage of this approach: the typical jump blues guitar licks you learn can very easily be moved to fit a different chord.
