Watch the Solo 1-2 online guitar lesson by Matthieu Brandt from Jump Blues

The more movement you have within chord grooves and the thicker the chords are, the more you're gonna be in everybody's face. Which isn't bad if you intend it that way.
These next grooves can be part of a solo, for instance, as a climax at the very end. They can also be played in the background, but be careful. Turn your amp down and/or turn the treble on your guitar down. It also helps to not really dig into the strings but gently stroke them. Stay out of the way of the soloist.
Example 1 gives you a fancy trick with moveable 6th chords. Moving them up and down a blues scale sounds real cool. Add an in-your-face walkup with chords, throw in another bunch of fancy tricks and stir!
Example 2 is a jazz walkup within a chord. It doesn't get more uptown than this.
