Watch the Solo #5 online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Solo Factory: Texas Blues

It's slow blues time. I really enjoy playing over this type of feel because I can take my time! I start this one out with the I chord lick Brotherly Love. Remember, this is the Vaughan Brothers inspired lick and it just works well. After this lick I leave some space to breathe. The danger with the slow blues feels is that we sometimes have a tendency to play too much. Hopefully you'll see where I'm headed with this example. I try to hold back a bit before introducing the IV chord lick Cross Your T's. This lick is a nice melodic choice and sits well in this solo. Lastly, I choose the lick Nine To Five because it has that traditional turnaround that just works perfectly. Try this one out and think about what you'd do with it.
