ABOUT Blues Lesson Lick #8
------------------------------------------------
I’m proud to present to you my 8th blues lick guitar lesson. In this video, I'll teach you how to play a slow but powerful blues-rock phrase in the key of A minor. This blues-rock phrase is played over a slow blues-rock jam track in A minor (12-8, 12 bar blues). This collection of blues licks is inspired by guitar players like B.B. King, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Clapton, and David Gilmour.  As usual, you get the guitar tabs on the screen in this video. A few times, I transpose the minor blues licks an octave lower to make things a bit easier.

Concepts that are present in this blues solo guitar lesson
- alternate picking and legato (hammer-on, pull-off)
- mixing metrics (playing duplets and quadruplets)
- A minor pentatonic, pentatonic scale
- blues bends, expressive blues bends

*Gear:
-The guitar used is a Gibson Les Paul  (pickups: Seymour Duncan JB and Duesenberg p90)
-Amp: Engl Screamer 50 (no pedals)
- 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 minor blues licks that you can use in your playing!

Thanks a lot for your support!
