Watch the 16th Street online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from 50 R&B Licks You MUST Know

I'm combining two shapes of the A blues scale for this lick. I recommend using your little finger to your first finger to articulate the pull-off from E at the 12th fret to the C at the 8th fret.

The use of the chromatic runs from the blues scale are cool and you'll hear that I am descending through that idea first and then ascending to add movement and some dissonance before resolving on the root and tonic, A.
