Watch the Back Pedaling Solo 1 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Lab: Blues Soloing

The concept of phrasing can never be considered enough by you the burgeoning improviser. It is what makes or breaks a great solo. It is the chi of your creative output as a lick-meister. It's EVERYTHING. In order for this horizontal approach to work over such a seemingly complex set of changes the phrasing has got to be just right - and in this solo it is. Be sure to put the time into nailing the feel of this first solo as well as the two that follow and then continue studying the innards of what makes up these jams so you can get the ideas into your own playing.
