Blues Solos That YOU Love

I'm looking to get back into the blues (it's so damn universal and manifests in almost all contemporary music)

What are the 3 most useful BLUES solos you ever learned from (from transcribing or even from just listening).

Just three, they don't have to be THE best, just solos that come to mind.

I realise there are similar threads, but I'd like to interact with some humans and not just a search engine!

Thanks!

Albert King has a ton, and I recommend "Oh Pretty Woman" as one to start with.

any live version will do. That's about all I needed to tell me what blues lead was really all about

On Live At the Regal, BB King plays his Sweet Little Angel/My Own Fault/How Blue Can You Get medley (The same one that the Allmans covered that was on the Duane Allman Anthology.) I love BB's solo between Sweet Little Angel and My Own Fault. The whole thing, thoush, is incredible.

I also really love the piano turnaround at the end of the spoken intro to the song. It's a nice ascending/descending counterpoint.
