Watch the Tripped Over online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from 50 Progressive Blues Licks You MUST Know

What can you say about Scott Henderson and the blues? Take Stevie Ray Vaughan and mix it together with Coltrane. Mix in a little Hendrix and Miles Davis. Yeah, that's a few things you could say about Scott. Henderson truly is a progressive blues player who takes the style to new places. We'll be hearing from him a lot throughout this course.

This is a lick over a minor blues tune called Tore Down House. What's important to notice about players like Henderson is his use of rhythmic phrasing. Notice the 16th note triplets in this 12/8 song. We're in C minor here and it's mostly pentatonic but, it's absolutely Henderson!
