Watch the Ornamental online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from 30 Beginner Fingerstyle Blues Licks You MUST Know

With this lick, we're using the D7/F# voicing as part of a turnaround resolving from E7 back to A. The tricky hammer-on/pull-off move in measure two is kind of the star of the show here, but I'm also partial to the chromatic move in measure one as well. That way of slipping by half-steps from the root down to the b7 is prevalent in both country blues and bebop improvisation, and what's not to like about that?
