12 Bar blues in A guitar jam track
This is a jam tracking we made specifically for practicing blues guitar improvising. Improvising is just a fancy word for soloing. Its time to get your lead guitar on! Turn on the backing track, and play either Pentatonic pattern 1 in the 5th position, or the blues scale in the 5th position. Don’t use the 2 lowest strings to start. That will help you not sound like your running through scales.
Improve your Phrasing
Try to catch a specific phrase, and come back to the phrase once in a while. This will take your soloing to a higher level. It will also help you get out of the rut of sounding like a noodler. Employ the hammer on and pull off techniques we discussed previously. But most importantly have fun and express yourself through the instrument!
