Watch the Tiptoe online guitar lesson by Anthony Stauffer from 50 Slow Blues Licks You MUST Know
This lick shows the incredible dynamic range of B.B.'s playing. It's a perfect lead in for a subdued, soulful, solo chorus. You'll want to leave plenty of space at the end of the preceding chorus for dramatic effect. Most of the notes are played quite delicately, but pay attention to the accents, they provide the contrast that makes this lick sound great.
