Watch the Lick Study 7 online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Beginner Blues-Rock Soloing

This lick is a little quick right off the top, but fortunately it sounds equally as good at half time. You'll find that with most of the licks in this course, and that's one of the main ideas I want to get across. We can make almost any lick, provided we're in the right key, work over almost any groove.

But understand that it's a skill you must acquire through practice. For example, all these licks are in the key of D minor, so try moving them to another key and use a different playalong. The trick is to make the same lick work over a different rhythmic feel, and the only way you're going to get this is by doing it.
