Watch the Shuffle E Solo online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Essentials: Advanced Blues Soloing
To make this solo easier to breakdown, I've constructed it in sections. What's cool here is that all those individual licks can be applied just about to any blues or rock tune provided you take the key into consideration. The three chords in an E blues are E7, A7, and B7. E7 is spelled E-G#-B-D, A7 is A-C#-E-G, and B7 is B-D#-F#-A.
As you go through this solo, be sure you see which note I'm playing on which chord. In the first lick, you can see I play a number of G# notes either via bending or fretting. By using that note, I'm clearly defining the E7 chord. The same goes for the A7 and B7. This is called playing on the chords and can open up a whole new world of possibilities.
