Watch the Wake Up online guitar lesson by Richard Van Bergen from 50 Down Home Blues Licks You MUST Know
This lick is another example of a pattern that’s repeated several times and acts as a theme. It is based on the opening verse of B.B. King’s 'Woke up this Morning' from 1953. The song has a rhumba rhythm and is played in the key of C. Again a couple of double stops are used. The lick is played over the full 12 bar progression.
