EXAMPLE10 t-bone WAlKer

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

T-Bone set the blues solo­ing tem­plate and was one of the first to bend strings. The bends in bar 10 are the kind of idea that play­ers like Chuck Berry would go on to es­tab­lish as the cor­ner­stones of rock and roll. The turn­around in bar 14 is a T-Bone favourite and he would play many vari­a­tions dur­ing a solo. This lick is also the ba­sis of one of Srv’s clas­sic licks. Srv would of­ten in­clude the (C) to add chro­matic in­ter­est, but the con­tour re­mains sim­i­lar to T-Bone’s for­mula.
