Watch the Larry's Trick Solo 1 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Lab: Blues Soloing

In this first solo, as well as the following second solo, there's ample emphasis on the major 3rd of the G7 chords (B), but the trick is it's played in every possible way that avoids playing it conventionally! There's half step approach bends from below (bar 1, first chorus), half step approach hammer-ons (pickup to bars 1, 3, 7 and 11 in second chorus) or half step approach slides (pickup to bars 3, 5 and 11 in first chorus) scattered throughout. This, as with many other moments throughout the course, are a testament to one simple fact: It's all about how you PHRASE the notes!
