Would this work? Blower switch with a cap for "woman tone."

I'm a big fan of blower/solo/bypass switches.

They're almost always used as a shortcut to the unfiltered bridge pickup, but I'd like to put one on a neck pickup. That I know I can do. But what I'd like to do is wire it up with a cap, so it's a shortcut to the neck pickup with the tone rolled off.

I like to set my neck pickup for a clean tone, but I also like to run it at max volume with the tone rolled down for leads. You know, like that dude with the top hat.

Would this be as simple as soldering a .022 cap from one of the lugs on the DPDT to the back of the pot? Or am I missing something?
