    Hmm.. Just use a simple blues progression and solo to it using the minor pentatonic. [=

    How about Lightnin’ Hopkins “Mojo Hand” ! or Jimmy Reed’s “You Don’t have to go”

    The best solo’s are the ones you make yourself, because i dont thing anyone would like playing with someone elses solo.

    If your good at creating solos, go for it…

    Lenny by SRV…its tough to do though and impossible to replicate the heart of SRV but it can be played impressively

    Excuse me, I dare to suggest you a double CD whose title is “WHITE BOYS BLUES” [*], which include some of the best British guitar players, such as… Eric Clapton (solo) together with Jimmy Page (base), by 1963/5 – wow! -, as well as Albert Lee, Jeff Beck, Jeremy Spencer, Tony McPhee, and some groups, such as Santa Barbara & Machine Head, Savoy Brown Blues Band, Ten Years After… [* CASTLE COMMUNICATIONS – MPO-France / CCSCD-UK]

    Other double CD (of SOME more recent – or… SOME less aged… artists) is “GUITAR HEROES” [VIRGIN+EMI+UNIVERSAL MUSIC], including Queen, Deep Purple, Def Lepard, Dire Straits, Black Sabbath, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Cream, Status Quo, Whitesnake and several other groups/soloists – an idea by Brian May (from Queen).

    here’s my own list whenever i play solo in blues:

    1) SRV – Chitlins Con Carne
    2) SRV – Little Wing
    3) Jimi Hendrix – Red House
    4) Eric Clapton – Reptile
    5) BB King – The Thrill Is Gone

    for no.3 and no.5, I usually replace singing with own improvised solos playing on backing track.

    Some people prefering pentatonic wanking instead of music, and that’s fine. Myself, I prefer fingerstyle blues. Listen to some delta, then some folkish stuff (Ala mississippi john hurt). Figure it out.
