Watch the Major Herring online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Blues Guitar 9: Advanced Lick Vocabulary

Major Herring - Lick #20 is a video guitar lesson presented by Corey Congilio and is sourced from 50 Progressive Blues Licks You MUST Know.


Let's round out the first 20 licks with another wild lick from Jimmy Herring. This lick is in Bb and combines major scale runs and pentatonic sounds. I had to include at least one lick in this series that shows off some of Herring's complexities.

This is another fast lick but, be sure to practice it very slowly. Also, take it in two parts. Are you ready?
