4 Note Blues Solo

You’d be surprised what a sweet sound and a great combination 4 notes can be when applied to a solo. Blues Legends like BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Eric Clapton, have all used a combination of 4 notes to create magic in their solos. Hard to believe? Well, let’s examine 4 notes in the key of A. Below I’ve got tab to indicate the notes. In the key of A you will be dealing with G, A, C, D. Those are the notes but it’s the technique and rythmic patterns, that really give this 4 note blues a kick!
