Watch the Proof In The Pudding online guitar lesson by David Grissom from Open Road Blues
When soloing, it’s important to think about how you're going to begin. By starting low, we can reference the rhythm and bass parts while giving ourselves some room to grow. The first chorus of this solo builds off of the motif, staying low on the neck. The second chorus moves to a higher register and is more expressive, milking the notes for all they are worth in the style of Albert King and Buddy Guy. The third chorus uses a pedal tone as the base, with double stops as accents over top. Double stops are also used for a country style chickin’ pickin’ sound to finish out the solo.
