    Question 12 bar blues, 4 note solo

    A video appears on youtube of a 4 note solo but is played by a guitar player. Would a member be so kind to demonstrate a similar solo for those of us who play mando but need it nice and slow. I know that it is presumptuous, but, I enjoy playing 12 bar in E, "I like the rhythm of the 12 bar blues".

    "Slow Blues Backing Track in E" on youtube gets me partially to my goal!!! Now I just need to play the 4 note solo over and over until I get embedded in my head.

    For your lead, try playing any of the notes from either the E major Scale, or E Blues Scale:



    Thanks for the link to the backing track. Looks like fun. I'm looking forward to playing along on my e-mando!
