Here is a fun lesson for you who want to learn killer blues licks. 6 licks may not sound like a lot, but you see, I’m playing these licks over 2 completely different tracks. In some ways, you are getting 2 lessons in one. One advanced and one intermediate.
The first one (advanced), is a fast blues-rock track at 145 BPM. The other (intermediate), is a slow blues at 65 BPM. These licks work great almost anywhere, so I really wanted you to see that. That’s why I call them “killer licks”.
These licks are great in several ways; you really get to know that pentatonic box, since all licks start at the same place. They are also great starting points for creating your own licks.
The 3 notes in the beginning are the same for all the licks, and I’m carefully explaining how you should pick and dampen these notes, so that they ring clear and sound just right.
If you are an intermediate player who want to get better at playing great sounding licks over rock or blues, this one is for you.
