Watch the Floor Blues Solo online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Essentials: Advanced Blues Soloing
What blues course would be complete without a tip of the hat to Jimi Hendrix? Besides Jimi's chord work, the vibe of his soloing had a greater effect on me than the actual licks, if that makes sense. The sheer intensity and ferocity that he would play with while also having the capacity to be extremely subtle has had a great impact on me. So, this solo is a little bit more about the vibe and big vibrato and overbends that he would use. These techniques require a lot of hand strength and practice!
