Watch the Bad Boy Bends online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Eclectic Blues Licks You MUST Know
This lick goes along with lick number 6, Bad Boy Blues. This keeps in line with that roadhouse guitar sound that I love so much. This one takes advantage of the cool whole step double stop we can get between the b7 and root of the I7 chord.
In the first part of the lick I am bending the 6th to the b7 while playing the root above. Add a little vibrato to the bent b7 and instant coolness! We can also play up the great overtones these double stops produce with some overdrive.
