This weeks GuitarBlog discusses the concept of how guitar players will apply chromatic ideas around common blues licks.
When applying this, "Blues Chromatic," technique the guitarist will generally either use a very linear method of straight, 'step by step,' movements, or they'll use a method of approaching "scale" or "chord" tones from above or from below by perhaps a, "step or two," (in and around a chord tone).
These chromatic concepts can be slipped in at any time during a blues lick. The most popular areas will generally include the start or at the ending of a phrase.
In this video, I'll cover how these blues chromatic lines get established, and how guitar players can start to think about using chromatic parts in blues phrases. Enjoy!
