  • Another Easy Acoustic Blues Lick in E

    4:10

    Maybe the easiest acoustic blues lick ever?

    This MICRO LICK consists of just 4 notes and is played with just one finger. This is a great quick lick to throw into your blues rhythm playing to spice things up a bit.

    MICRO LICKS, like this one and the others in this series, are tiny lick fragments that become great building blocks for longer licks. But for the budding finger picking blues player, they work just fine on their own. Consisting of only three or four notes, these little guys may be simple but they are tasty.

    Remember: 'simple' or 'easy' doesn't mean 'boring' and these MICRO LICKS are great examples of that.

    Not only is the lick in this video super easy to nail (it's only four notes) but, this lick is incredibly versatile. I'm using this lick as a part of the classic blues shuffle pattern in E, but you can stick this lick into just about any groove.

    The use of the open strings in this lick really add some nice overtones if you let them ring a bit like I do in the video. The other cool thing about a lick like this that makes use of open strings is that it frees up your fret hand to move into the next position. That's one of the best reasons that this lick works so well to color your rhythm playing.

    Practice moving in and out of the typical blues rhythm shuffle pattern and this lick. If you need help, watch the video. I do this multiple times during the lesson. Also, be sure to check out the website for the complete lesson:



    Preview for the next lesson: We'll start linking these MICRO LICKS together to build longer licks. This is where the magic of MICRO LICKS really takes off.

    If you're serious about improving your blues guitar skills, join the Blues Guitar Institute newsletter to get quick tips, licks and lessons:



    If you are new to fingerstyle blues and want to get started, check out this video:



    There, I'll show you how to get started playing some sweet finger picked acoustic blues.

    Play Hard!

    PS - If any of these licks make you think you'll never be able to play them, think again! Start with these small MICRO LICKS and keep at it. It takes tons of practice to play even the smallest lick, riff or chord on the guitar. But that's why we do it, right? For the challenge and the reward! So, keep at it!

  • Simple Acoustic Blues Guitar Lick in E - Train Whistle Lick

    4:15

    Want to know the secret to becoming a GREAT guitar player? Here it is...

    Being a good guitar player is all about doing the little things and doing them well. Over time, they add up to something incredible. There is no special sauce, there is no 'learn how to play guitar in a weekend' DVD that will instantly make you a guitar guru.

    It just doesn't happen. BUT, practicing hard and smart WILL get you there.

    Look at any of your favorite guitar players, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, BB King, Robert Johnson...you get the idea. Each of them started with the basics and put in a ton of hours to become the legends they are today.

    What this video shows you is that 'basic' doesn't mean 'boring'. When I first began learning guitar, I hated practicing scales. I just wanted to play like my heroes. So I started strumming Michael Row the Boat Ashore....What the?? Um, thanks but no thanks Mel Bay!

    Looking back, I can see so many 'cool' things that I could have started with instead of that song.

    Whether you play with a flat pick or you're wanting to get into fingerstyle acoustic blues guitar and play like Robert Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt or Blind Boy Fuller, start with simple little licks like the one in the video. I call them MICRO LICKS.

    They are tiny lick fragments that become great building blocks for longer licks. But for the budding finger picking blues player, they work just fine on their own.

    There's probably not a lick more recognizable that this 'train whistle' lick that works beautifully in E blues. If you want to play the blues, you have to know how make the train whistle sound. Period.

    I mean, it's the blues :)

    Be sure to check out the website for the complete lesson:

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    We’re still all stuck at home and I’m still working on fun licks for you guys to practice. In today’s lockdown lick we’re learning a twangy, open-string country lick in the key of E. This is the sort of thing you could expect to hear from players like Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, Albert Lee, Brent Mason… the list goes on!

    The main takeaway from this lick, is the combination of 3rd’s from the E major pentatonic and the E blues scale. The blues scale has a flat 3rd and the major pentatonic has a major 3rd. Listen to any pro country or blues player and you’ll find that they often combine major pentatonic and minor pentatonic/blues scale based licks when improvising over I IV V progressions.

    As mentioned in the first lockdown lick video, this combination of pentatonic scales is very similar to the scale formula for the mixolydian mode. If you want to know more about mixolydian and its relationship to pentatonic scales, check out this free video:

    //

    TUESDAY BLUES #178

    If you never picked up a guitar in your life, you'd swear that some blues was pretty easy to pull off. The sound isn't complicated, especially when a true master of the craft is playing the part.

    I really think that the two licks we cover in this lesson fit this mold. They don't sound inherently difficult, but there's more than meets the eye....or ear :-)

    LICK #1 - Walkin' Blues

    The first lick that we cover is from the intro to Walkin' Blues and there are a couple of parts of this lick that will help improve your slide playing. First, there's those quick brush up triplets that suddenly shift into single notes. Then, there's a huge position shift that Mr. Johnson seems to tackle with ease.

    LICK #2 - Come on in my Kitchen

    This is one of my favorite Robert Johnson moments. That little lick he plays right after delivering the lyric, It's goin' to be rainin' outdoors. The way he plays it is so natural. A casual listener would never know the technique needed to nail this lick especially with it's single note stabs that come out of no where.

    Practice these two licks and focus on nailing them completely and you'll find your slide game improving. This is the awesome intersection (or crossroads) where learning songs and improving technique meet.

    Good luck and as always...

    Play On!

  • Blues Lick in the Key of E Flat.

    3:15

    Hi Guys i thought I'd put together this little video based on a blues lick centred around the Nut.
    these kind of licks with the open strings punished me for a while but once you get used to working close to the headstock it really opens up those Stevie tones we all know and love.
    This Vid was shot on new camera and audio equipment so there are a few teething problems [ mainly focus] trying to play, teach,camera man and sound tech all on your own can be a little tricky, things slip through the net!! These issues will be sorted in the coming vids.

    The pentatonic scale is a fundamental scale for genres of music ranging from blues to country to rock. A lot of you are familiar with playing pentatonics in closed scale positions, but you can also play a pentatonic in the open position to give you a new outlook on a scale you’re already familiar with and probably use frequently. In this pentatonic scale exercise, Robert uses primarily an Em pentatonic, although there are some chromatic tones thrown in. These tones can be used judiciously. Robert breaks down the scale for you note by note and shows you an alternate picking pattern to play it. There are some pull-offs at play as well that you can use to add a smooth transition between notes. Robert discusses in detail the use of the notes outside the scale and encourages you to use them to explore beyond the boundaries of your creativity. Robert doesn’t only encourage you to use the chromatics, but he shows you some of the best ways to accomplish using the notes in a musical way. This is a powerful pentatonic scale exercise that offers a great deal of functionality. Not only can you make immediate use of it as a practice tool, both for developing your ear and increasing your knowledge of where to find scales, you can use it in real-world playing situations. If you’re new to pentatonic scales, you can check out other videos by Robert that discuss the pentatonic scale and its musical uses. The pentatonic scale is one of the most versatile in music, and this open position pentatonic scale exercise offers it to you in a new way, allowing you to expand on the concept and giving you a new way to way to apply it to what you already know about pentatonics.

    In today’s lesson we will add a few classic blues licks to our repertoire. These phrases are relatively easy to play; in fact I can perform them with just my pointer finger! Each lick is derived from the open position of the blues scale shown below, which means you can quickly change the key by using a capo. Let’s get started!
