The Best Blues Licks
I've created a fun lesson on the best blues licks to use. I call them Killer Licks, because they are must-know licks.
A very useful thing about these licks is that they all start the same way. That's another reason you should know these. So many SRV and Hendrix licks start the same way, just like I teach you here.
The licks are played in the key of E, and there are 2 different styles of blues tracks that I play them over. This way, you'll really get to know these licks, and you'll learn how to use them over slow or fast blues tunes.
6 Licks may not sound like a lot, but because I go over them extremely thoroughly, and provide 2 styles of how to play them, an Intermediate player can get a LOT out of this lesson.
This is an Intermediate lesson - not for advanced players. However, a beginner who is really keen on playing blues will be able to learn these licks fairly soon.
