Watch the Take Your Time Solo online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Essentials: Advanced Blues Soloing

"Take Your Time" focuses on a few techniques and primarily uses the G minor pentatonic scale. I wanted to put together a somewhat aggressive solo with some cool vibrato. Vibrato is one of the most important techniques for any guitar player to spend a considerable amount of time on; it's your voice.

We can spot most guitar players instantly from their tone and more importantly vibrato, as we know no two players are the same. It's a technique you must practice with intent and spend a lot of time on to define, refine, build hand strength, keep it in tune, and keep it under control. Keep this in mind when listening to any guitar player and make a note of their approach to vibrato.
