ABOUT Blues Lesson Lick #9
-----------------------------------------------
I’m proud to present to you my 9th blues lick guitar lesson. This blues phrase is played over a slow blues-rock jam track in C minor (12-8). In this lesson, I focus on atypical licks that stay on 1 string or skip strings. The licks fit over a turnaround (last 2 bars of a 12-bar blues. chorus) and come from the C minor blues scale (or C minor pentatonic with the blue note). Variation 2 uses hybrid picking and is inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughan's playing. So, you'll get a hybrid picking lesson for beginners in this video. Enjoy!

Concepts that are present in this blues solo guitar lesson
- skipping strings (vertical phrasing)
- staying on 1 string (horizontal phrasing)
- legato (hammer-on, pull-off)
- hybrid picking
- C minor pentatonic, blues scale, blue note

*Gear:
-The guitar used is a Fender 1994 Stratocaster (stock pickups)
- Amp: Fractal AX8 preset
- The squeaky chair is a Gibson bar stool 😉

I had a lot of fun making this video, & I sincerely hope that this 9th  music lesson will inspire you and maybe some new C minor blues licks that you can use in your playing!

Thanks a lot for your support! 

Special thanks to my friend Sunny for giving me the Vinyl in the back as a present (JJ Cale's Shades!)
