Watch the Bring In Da Blues online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 5: Lick Lexicon

Bring In Da Blues - Lick 1 is a video guitar lesson presented by Tom Dempsey and is sourced from 50 Soul Jazz Licks You MUST Know.


This first lick "Bring In Da Blues" is out of the Kenny Burrell sound. It's a good one to start with because it really helps capture that classic Soul Jazz sound. We'll be borrowing from the minor pentatonic, major pentatonic, blues scale and mixolydian mode all in one nice idea. It's in Bb but it should be practiced in all keys as it really can be a staple in your improvisation vocabulary.
