Watch the 12/8 Blues Solo online guitar lesson by Mark Wilson from Blue Grooves

This solo over the 12/8 pattern features a strong melody that sings over the percussive rhythm section and is yet another example of the call and response form. Notice how the use of rests allows the melody to breath and capture the listener's attention. It's a simple solo structure, but all the right notes are played and you'll hear the importance of incorporating chord tones, in the right places, when building effective blues solos.
