Watch the Makin’ Your Way online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Solo Factory: Texas Blues

Playing fast tempos can be intimidating but shouldn’t be. I just play slower! You can try to play 16th notes if you want but if you don’t have the chops yet you might sound sloppy. Here is a cool lick that will sound like you’re playing fast and covering a lot of the fretboard. We’re sliding into pattern 1 then quickly moving our way to pattern 2. You’ll get your sliding techniques worked out with these types of licks for sure. Dig how I use them over the entire blues form.
