Jump Blues (+ Tab)

Jump Blues improvisation in the key of C, inspired by the playing of JP Soars, Chuck Berry (and even Josh Smith). Have fun with this guitar solo!

I filmed a jump blues solo improvisation this week and decided it would be a good idea to tab it out ! There are a lot ideas going on here, but the main inspiration comes from seeing JP Soars live a few years ago. He’s a great guitarist and plays these swingin’ blues licks on his ES-335 in a masterful way. Have fun with this ‘bag of licks’ (or tricks), inspired by JP Soars, but also B.B. King, Chuck Berry, Josh Smith & others. (Note: i made a small correction in bar 20)
