Watch the Long Way From Slow online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Blues Guitar 9: Advanced Lick Vocabulary

Long Way From Slow - Lick #20 is a video guitar lesson presented by Corey Congilio and is sourced from 50 Texas Blues Licks You MUST Know.


We could probably make
a series with 50 Stevie Ray Vaughan licks. Since we're not doing that, I've only included some
highlights of the master of the stratocaster. I chose this next lick because some of Stevie's best
playing was recorded just before he passed away.

The album Family Style is a
great example of the more mature SRV. The song Long Way From Home is a really hot tune with some
great licks. Again, SRV is blending major and minor pentatonic sounds. This is a killer example of
an open pentatonic lick.
