What are we shootin’ for :


The solo section of this book/website aims to teach you to learn how to solo in Swing- and Jump-Blues.
Much like in the example above.

To do this we’ll learn The Standard Riff in all the Blues Positions across the neck.
This is a great tool to integrate notes from the Mixolydian Scale into your solos.

After you’ve learned the basics, we’ll go through 12 original solos, each tackling different positions and possibillities.

When you’ve gone through this section, take a look at the Artist Solos for inspiration.
