Watch the Larry's Trick online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Lab: Blues Soloing

Larry's Trick is going to follow a similar format for its three solos: The first two will be closely related to each other with the second solo containing variations of the first solo, while the third solo will depart from the former and set its own path to match the signature comping groove. Every set of three solos could be played within a multi-chorus solo. With that in mind, check out the thematic changes littered across the sets. Here in Larry's Trick you have a feel change within bars 1 and 2 from the first to second chorus where the swing 1/8 vs. triplet 1/8 feel is reversed. Also, check out how the phrasing in bars 3 and 5 of the first chorus are slightly enhanced to triplet 1/8s in the second chorus. This idea comes to full fruition all in one bar in the second chorus where you see this approach played out in bar 9 over the D7.
