This Micro Lesson covers a fast paced Blues Lick in the key of, "A Blues." It can function perfectly over the Dominant Seventh chord.
The lick primarily uses the "A Blues Scale." Working from within the popular fifth position of the Blues Scale pattern, the lick flows in and around the Blues Scale tones (1, b3, 4, b5, 5, b7), with a consistent sixteenth-note meter.
There are an abundance of Hammer-on, Pull-off and Slide embellishments. The embellishments create a very smooth flow to the lick, but will require special care in respect to the left-hand fingering technique. Be sure to watch the video and closely examine the layout for the fingering.
Practice the lick slowly and perfectly until it is fully memorized. Then use a metronome to build speed. Enjoy!
