Watch the Essentials: Advanced Blues Soloing online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Essentials: Advanced Blues Soloing

Hi, I'm Jeff McErlain. Thanks for checking out Essentials: Advanced Blues Soloing. I'm really excited about this course, because I get to share with you some of my favorite ways to approach soloing. I have prepared 10 studies for you, all of them containing advanced techniques like hybrid picking, diminished scales, diminished arpeggios, controlled bends and vibrato, advanced phrasing, and more. I've covered a variety of styles, but I'm still staying within the blues genre.

Since this is an advanced course, I wouldn't say any of the examples are particularly easy to play, so please take your time with them. They're also not in any particular order due to difficulty. My suggestion is to listen through the examples and find the solo you would like to work on first and dive in. The ultimate goal here is not to be able to play this example perfectly but to pick up ideas from them to help increase your technique, vocabulary, and improve your phrasing. So, let's get started!
