Watch the Slow Shuffle Solo online guitar lesson by Mark Wilson from Blue Grooves

This solo motif is another example of the cardinal rule of blues solos - less is more. A few notes played creatively and with feeling are much more effective than a flurry of notes played without direction or purpose. Good players express a tremendous amount of passion with just a few notes which is very evident when listening to great blues artists. This solo leverages hammers and bends to punctuate the solo and emphasize the blues voice. Visit Mark Wilson at
