Shooting Cold

This course will teach you how to solo like SRV in the song Cold Shot, at three different skill levels.


Shooting Cold

Cold Shot oozes that Texas Blues swing, but from a soloing perspective the studio version is quite tame. So I went digging for live performances of that song and found that Stevie definitely amped it up on stage. So I took the cool, laid-back feel of the studio version and added in some the fireworks from the live performances.

The Shooting Cold lesson solos are based on that combination of sophistication and flair. Each solo starts in a relaxed groove, building gradually to a crescendo at the end of the third chorus. These lessons are among the easiest in the Solo Matrix - at all skill levels.
