Watch the Slick E online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Guitar is a very cool instrument as we know, what makes it especially cool (and frustrating) is that we can play the same note in many positions. This lick takes full advantage of the blue note of the E major blues scale. When we are discussing major blues don't forget the formula is R, 2, b3, 3, 5, 6. The trick of this lick is that I am doubling that b3rd on both the 2nd and 3rd strings. This is something sax players do a lot.
