Micro Lesson 077: "Key of A" Blues Chromatic Lick

Welcome to... "Micro-Lesson 077"

This Micro Lesson adds a twist to the basic Blues sound and incorporates chromatic sections around the notes of the common Blues Scale. 

Set within the key of "A Blues," this lick begins with a short and detached sounding descending chromatic phrase moving along the 1st string. 

The second measure moves through far more of a  typical blues phrase approach with the "A Blues Scale." However, in the final measure, the chromatic ideas really shine by pushing through a busy group of ascending and descending chromatic ideas. 

Take the chromatic examples found in this lick and apply them into your own licks for creating some of your own interesting Blues Chromatic concepts. Enjoy!
