About the Guitar Lesson Plan
Interactive Video Guitar Instruction
Jeff draws from influences ranging from British royalty like Clapton, Page and Green to Texas bluesmen like SRV and the Reverend Billy G. Licks inspired by electric blues pioneers such as B.B., T Bone, Albert King and John Lee Hooker are also included. Of course, licks in the style of Robert Johnson are here along with plenty of Jimi-approved concepts.
50 Blues Licks goes well beyond the same old tired minor pentatonic moves as Jeff covers sliding 6ths, chromatics, minor and major applications, diminished lines, overtones, killer double-stops, octaves, rakes, swing comping, swampy down-home licks, Delta-approved turnarounds, tasty compingideas and how to use the blue's built-in flat third to natural third ambiguity to create tension and dynamics in your playing.
After mastering 50 Blues Guitar Licks You MUST Know, you'll have the knowledge to deliver powerful, evocative solos within a broad range of styles from British to Chicago, Austin to Detroit, Memphis to the Mississippi Delta.
