Watch the SECTION 2: Performance Studies online guitar lesson by David Blacker from Swing Blues Survival Guide: Lead

Now we're going to get into the performance studies section where we'll learn and play 12 solos. These solos are based on the playing of swing blues greats such as Bill Jennings, Duke Robillard, Junior Watson, T-Bone Walker, Tiny Grimes, Hollywood Fats and others. By absorbing their approach to phrasing, you'll internalize their musical ideas that will form the basis of your own swing blues approach.
