Watch the 12 Bar Blues: Part 2 online guitar lesson by Mimi Fox from Graduated Solos
In this second solo, you can hear that I am starting off playing simple lines derived from the original melody. This solo is highly singable which means it has good contour and logic. It also uses the blues scale but cleverly integrates it with more complex and compound lines. This creates a fresh sound, but retains the fire and earthiness of the blues! How one mixes all the different scales and lines into one seamless phrase is what distinguishes one player from the next.
