Watch the Alimoanin' Blues online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from 50 Texas Blues Licks You MUST Know

We'll start with a lick
from T-Bone Walker. Aaron Thibeaux Walker was born on May 28, 1910 and died on March 16 1975. He's
one of the most well known Texas blues guitarists. When I think of T-Bone, I think of a big hollow
body Gibson busting out horn lines over swing and jump blues tunes. I got this first lick from a
tune called Alimony Blues and I'll play it over a 12 bar blues track. I'm doing this so you can hear
how the lick can be used over the entire form.

This lick does what I call
"combining" major and minor pentatonic sounds. This is a lick you'll hear saxophonists use
and I'm sure that they were the inspiration behind the lick. The lick is in the key of C and as I
said, combines major and minor pentatonic scales.

I'll play it at normal speed
and then I'll slow it down and explain it. Have fun with this over the 12 bar backing
track.
