Watch the Lick Vocabulary 3 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Progressive Blues Power

Wandering freely through this position, and the many licks outlined here, will give you ample opportunity to work on your fretting technique, as there are so many fingering changes, and all four of the fret hand fingers are constantly in use. I also like how a majority of the licks fall in the middle of the fretboard, so I am incorporating unwound and wound strings almost equally. In a few of these examples, I add the sixth, C#, to the phrases, as it adds a really nice melodic and harmonic twist, as a slight nod to E major pentatonic, to the E blues sound.
