Most successful guitar players would agree that practicing your instrument is a great way to get your chops up. But, they would also agree that an even better way to improve your performance is to jam with other players. Taking your own solos helps you get better at playing lead lines, and comping for a soloist sharpens your abilities as a rhythm player. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.
In Corey Congilio’s Slow Blues edition of Trading Solos, he gives you the opportunity to do just that: jam with an amazing counterpart. In the course, Corey teaches you how he approaches slow blues tunes from technical and performance standpoints.
Here are 4 free blues soloing guitar lessons from the course. For the full course check out Corey Congilio’s Trading Solos: Slow Blues on TrueFire!
Slow Blues Guitar Lesson – Style Tips
Over the years, I’ve gravitated towards P-90 and humbucker pickups. The fat warm tones seem to suit my playing. My overdriven tones will run the gambit of light to smooth sustaining type tones. I generally like to have some delay and reverb on hand too to create a great atmospheric and emotional sound.
These days I’m using Paul Reed Smith guitars as well as a few vintage Gibson instruments through Two Rock Amplifiers.
