Watch the On the Up and Up online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Eclectic Blues Licks You MUST Know

Here is another lick mixing the major and minor blues scales. The combination of these two scales is key to some more of these advanced blues sounds. When we put the note in order we get R,2,b3,3,4,b5,5,6,b7. That's a lot of chromatic notes to take in, but if we look at it as mixing two scales we already know, it becomes much easier to digest.

Also a key element to this lick, like the title suggests is coming in and accentuating the up beats. This really gives the lick some forward motion.
