Of all the blues licks you must know, it’s absolutely essential to learn a blues lick in homage to one of the greatest blues guitar players to ever live. That’s what this lesson will give you.
In the video I show you the blues lick, how it relates to the style of BB King licks, then I break it down for you piece-by-piece to get you playing it right away!
The blues lick is in the key of A, and it’s the perfect blues lick to get you out of the first position pentatonic box.
Because it wouldn’t be the most appropo of BB King licks if it weren’t played within the “BB Box” pentatonic scale, which is the third position. I show you exactly where that is located on your fretboard.
