Watch the Florida Blues online guitar lesson by Jimmy Heffernan from Essentials: Blues Dobro Solos

"Florida Blues" is another blues in A, exploring some positions up the neck. Lots of cool licks for you in here that can translate to any key. Notice the phrasing and how each piece or phrase is "saying something;" being very vocal with your part is essential to a good blues solo. You should be able to whistle your solo or sing it—be melodic. The "spooky" sounding section in this solo is inspired by the great dobro player Josh Graves.
