Watch the Lick Vocabulary 9 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Progressive Blues Power

We are now ready for our ninth collection of phrases, illustrated here as Lick Vocabulary 9. In licks one and two, I stick with the lower portion of the board, moving as seamlessly as possible between first and third positions. Starting with lick three, I slowly expand the range of the licks while exploring more and more melodic possibilities. Try to memorize these licks and then develop improvised melodic inventions of your own.
