Watch the Walkin Man Blues 8 online guitar lesson by Carl Verheyen from S.W.A.T. Blues

In these two choruses I start with a traditional blues lick in A minor pentatonic. This is a simple line, and its purpose is to draw the listener in with something familiar that says, "This is the blues!" After that I can get away with a lot of wild and jagged musical ideas that hopefully expand the format a bit.
