Watch the Holy Smokes online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Blues Guitar 10: Advanced Soloing Principles
Holy Smokes - Perfomance is a video guitar lesson presented by Corey Congilio and is sourced from Essentials: Texas Blues Solos.
What's important to know about this solo off the bat is that even though the song is in the key of E, this example starts on the A or IV chord of this progression. The progression is indeed 12 bars, but this is not a 12 bar blues. You'll see what I mean by following along with the chart as I take you through this chord progression in the video.
