Watch the One Lick Blues Too online guitar lesson by Jimmy Heffernan from Essentials: Blues Dobro Solos
Here we are in A again, demonstrating the same principle with a different lick over a different groove. The E or V chord lick I'm using here is a solid, well used blues lick that should be in your arsenal. Notice in the first half of the V chord lick I’m playing in E, and in the second half I'm playing "ahead of the band" with an A chord lick to pull your ear to the I or A chord. This is to clue the listener into what's coming ahead, and is done often in the blues (so it’s a good thing to learn).
