Watch the To The Rescue online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from 50 Progressive Blues Licks You MUST Know
I can't go on enough about Jimmy Herring. I'm so glad he's getting the publicity he deserves. Licks like #36 are reason enough to want to go back to the woodshed for some well deserved practicing. I call it To The Rescue because, you may be crying for help as I was when learning this one! Also, it's an homage to his band Aquarium Rescue Unit. He plays this lick in the tune One Strut from the Lifeboat record.
This lick is mostly pentatonic but, notes from the melodic minor scale as well as b9 sounds will be present as well. Warning, this is really fast so, dissect it and take your time!
