Lesson ID: A0182
In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play a 12 bar bluesy country guitar solo in the key of E. This guitar solo sounds great over the 12 bar blues progression that we studied in the previous guitar lesson here at Country Guitar Online called 12 Bar Blues in the Style of Merle Haggard. Download the guitar solo tablature below the lesson video, and after you learn the guitar solo, try practicing along with the backing track on this lesson post. This solo has a simple bluesy melody and it is a perfect example of how less can be more when you’re playing lead guitar. Also try using the key of E blues scale and the E major pentatonic scale to create your own bluesy country solo over this lesson’s backing track.

New guitar lesson! I don’t know about y’all, but I’m starting to go a little crazy being stuck at home all the time. I’m going to keep posting new lessons as soon as I get the videos recorded because I know y’all are probably bored at home going through same stuff. Hope you’re staying safe and healthy out there. Keep in touch, and keep the lesson requests coming https://countryguitaronline.com/request-a-lesson/

Hi Devin, another good one and have a nice evening!
Thanks Jocelyn and johnisme22 ! Hope y’all are doing well!
Now I know what I’ll be doing all day today, and play loud enough for the neighbors to here.
Learning the guitar for 5 years now and finally the kind of tunes I want to play.
For sure going crazy with all this, but having these lessons and learning new songs and skills has been a major source of enjoyment! Thanks! God bless you!
It would fit nicely with “My bucket’s got a hole in it” by Hank Williams
