This Blues Rock Solo in D channels blues masters like Kenny Wayne Shepherd (think “Blue On Black”) and Joe Bonamassa.
The A-section of this solo leaves space for slide guitar and acoustic riffs, adorned with my own bluesy embellishments, partly inspired by Guthrie Govan’s “Remember When.” The B-section heats up with Texas blues licks à la Shepherd, played on the Suhr HH’s split coil for authentic single-coil magic. In the C-section (chorus), we ascend to the bridge pickup for modern blues licks, balancing soulful long notes with flashy flourishes every fourth bar.
The Suhr truly shines here, proving its versatility as it delivers articulation, intonation, and feeling even in the high octaves. A touch of fuzz (from the Fractal AX8) accentuates the pick attack, culminating in a fuzzy upper-octave push for the solo’s final part.

This is a classic D minor Texas Blues lick. The bend on the 12th fret catapults the phrase back to the upper E-string. I especially like the feel of the descending sextuplet pattern that follows.
