Watch the Sweet 16 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Lab: Blues Soloing
Sweet 16 ushers in a few new elements to our emerging bag of blues soloing concepts. This time around we have a higher tempo than seen thus far (180 bpm), biting double stops and, as the name implies - an alternate, extended bar count (16 bars). To make the best of the added bars while dealing with the quickness of it all the idea of repetition becomes an integral part of the soloing ideas, as you'll see throughout all three solos. So take some deep breaths, dial up a little extra gain and get ready to get raucous.
