Watch the Nothing Without This online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Solo Factory: Texas Blues

You have to learn this one otherwise your slow blues will be nothing without it. Okay, that’s a little extreme but this lick is so signature that I had to include it. We’re in pattern 1 and we start the lick with the classic move we’ve been doing for awhile now. I call it the classic blues bend or signature blues pentatonic bend. The thing that makes this lick appealing is that you are playing up to the A on the first string 5th fret then, sliding to the same note but on the second string 10th fret. The two notes are the same but have a different nuance because of their place on the neck, etc. This lick has plenty of bends and vibrato. Have fun!
