Watch the Allman Blues Solo online guitar lesson by Mark Wilson from Blue Grooves

This solo opens with a classic rock-blues riff that many contemporary guitarists have respectfully borrowed. It's a good demonstration of how much mileage a classic Chuck Berry riff is good for. The phrasing has a tasty Duane Allman twist to it that utilizes a lot of punchy triplets. Most blues solos will utilize a lot of chord tones to compliment the rhythm section and keep the harmony in context for a more powerful sound. Visit Duane Allman at
