Watch the Level 4: Blues Bends online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Take 5: Blues Bends

I'll let you in on a little secret...don't tell anyone. This solo is basically Eric Clapton's solo on "Strange Brew", which he borrowed from Albert King. I did this for a reason — mainly, because it's cool. ;-) It's also STANDARD BLUES VOCABULARY and essential to becoming a good player. I repurposed ideas from that solo to create a new one. Are the licks the same? Yup, but you may not have noticed unless I said something.

I did this as an exercise to show how we can take one solo and rework it into another situation. EVERYONE has done this and it's the proven tradition in blues and jazz. Steal from the masters and make it your own eventually.
