Episode #024 covers three key of "E Blues," Delta Blues licks. The first lick focuses on coverage of the tonic chord of "E7." This coverage is one of the most important types for this style since it is used most often throughout the songs. 

In lick two, the application of intermixed harmony is applied using several chords outside of the key as a way to stress the arrival of the diatonic chords.

The final lick takes a look at one of the principle ideas used in Delta Blues, which is the turnaround phrase. These statements operate as intro's, progression repeat phrases, and song outro statements. They are critical to learn for playing the songs of this style.
