Watch the Holy Smokes online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Blues Guitar 10: Advanced Soloing Principles
Holy Smokes - Breakdown is a video guitar lesson presented by Corey Congilio and is sourced from Essentials: Texas Blues Solos.
There's a lot I really like about this example. First off, we start with a great melodic idea with the double stop/chord idea in the first 2 bars, followed by the riff and then the chord example again. Playing in the key of E offers us some great open string ideas and I made sure to use them! Towards the end of the solo, I put in some of my signature flair too—you'll notice the flurry of hybrid picking ideas I weave together. These last few bars are signature Congilio! Texas blues straight outta New Jersey folks!
