ABOUT Blues Lesson Lick #10
------------------------------------------------
I’m proud to present to you my 10th blues lick guitar lesson. In this video, I'll teach you how to play an easy blues groove in E, with different E minor blues licks on top! We'll start from a basic (open E chord) groove and add different licks with hammer-ons, pull-offs, blues bends, and hybrid picking.

Concepts that are present in this blues solo guitar lesson
- playing a blues groove (and licks) by yourself (or a basic rhythm)
- E minor blues scale
- bends, hammer-ons, pull-offs, hybrid picking

*Gear:
- The guitar used is a Gibson ES-335 (pickups 57 classics)
- Amp: Fuchs Blackjack Mk II
- Pedals: TC Electronic The Spark Booster, MXR Carbon Copy, Subdecay String Theory, T- rex Trimester
- Captured w. the Universal Audio Ox 

I had a lot of fun making this video, & I sincerely hope that this extended music lesson will provide you with some inspiration and maybe some new E minor blues licks that you can use in your playing!

Thanks a lot for your support!

If you read this entire description, you are awesome! 🤘 So let me tell you something extra: in this video, I experimented with recording the guitar's live 'string' sound (If you look closely in the left corner during the intro, you'll notice a condenser mic recording the live guitar sound). This gave me a ton of technical challenges to overcome (phase stuff, etc...), but in hindsight, I'm glad I tried it. Listen to Eric Clapton's Me & Mr. Johnson, where you'll often hear Clapton's live string sound on top of the amplifier sound. I really like this effect, so that's why I wanted to try it ;-)
