Watch the Minor Au Naturale Solo 3 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Lab: Blues Soloing

The third chorus really locks in the with the comp rhythm, which never fails. As stated previously, it ties everything together and if you're taking a multiple-chorus solo this is a very cool approach to throw in. Take note of the emphasis put on the offbeat 16ths (2nd and 4th subdivisions) starting right from the get-go in bar 1. Having a command of these syncopations is essential and will prove to be a very powerful phrasing tool when mastered. Right up there with quarter note triplets, these rhythms are totally hip and deserve some shed time.
