We are now ready to move on to another key, and it is another essential key for blues and blues/rock: the key of A. It is of course of tremendous benefit to transpose every lick that has been covered thus far to all 12 keys, so I encourage you to do so, and to do so in every fretboard position there is. The best way to take control of your soloing ability is to know the fretboard backwards and forwards, and this is an effective way to go about accomplishing that.
