Also, if you go to this page, of interest is Chris' Blues Licks section further down the page. Somwething I say often, learn the vocabulary of blues like the bread n butter licks. Playing a blues solo and in that in the key of E 'take the lead' moment, knowing the blues vocabulary is very useful. It's not so much learning a killer lead that you can apply to anything but, learning the licks that build up those killer blues leads.
