Slow Blues Rock Solo (Am)

Slow blues guitar solo in A minor, with David Gilmour influences.

About this slow blues

This solo was improvised over one of my blues backing tracks, called Turning Tides Blues. It’s a track with a 12-8 meter, creating a haunting electric blues feel. This blues style is inspired by BB. King, Peter Green, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore, and others.

I feel like there are not enough blues backing tracks in 12/8-time on the net, so I decided to do my take on it. The solo is mostly in A minor pentatonic. Notice how putting the longer notes on the first beat & the licks on the 4th help to push the beat forward. This tasty, modern electric blues solo is played on my Suhr Modern guitar, through the Fractal AX8.
