Ever since the first guitar hero, Sylvester Weaver, recorded the first blues guitar solos on "Guitar Blues" and "Guitar Rag" in 1923, they have been an integral part of the blues experience. From that time forward through the country and Delta blues era until the early 1940s, acoustic guitars were the only means of expression, and most blues were solo affairs. With the exception of the sensational duets Lonnie Johnson performed with Eddie Lang in the late 1920s and Scrapper Blackwell's accompaniment of pianist Leroy Carr in the 1930s, little in the way of memorable soloing was

accomplished for obvious reasons: the acoustic guitar playing single-note lines could not stand up against bleating horns and wailing harmonicas. All that changed after T-Bone Walker's amplified debut in 1942 (see "I Got a Break Baby"). A new "voice" was heard, and the face of blues changed almost overnight. The results of more than half-a-century of electric blues solos are what now lie before you. Twenty-five of the best, from Walker's suave, subtle statement to Buddy Guy's emotional outburst and Stevie Ray's fret-melting foray up the fingerboard, they are here
in all their magnificence. Taken together, they represent an unparalleled course in how to become a blues guitar monster. So grab your axe and start roaring.
