This volume in the Frank Vignola play-along series contains useful, well-structured solos for 14 choruses of the blues in the most common keys. Funky, bluesy, and bop oriented lines allow you to feel and hear what it is like to play a well-constructed solo. Some of these etudes have been recorded at both a slower practice tempo and at performance tempo. In the performance tempo renditions, the solo segments are often followed by numerous choruses featuring the rhythm section only. This format allows for individual practice of the written solos or elaboration of original ideas with a live rhythm section. Occasionally, during the rhythm only sections, Frank Vignola will play an improvised solo for four, 12 or 24 measures. These solos provide an opportunity for the student to interact with the recording by copying ideas, building upon what has just been played, or practicing the chords to the piece.
