Watch the Blue Six online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 5: Lick Lexicon

Blue Six - Lick 5 is a video guitar lesson presented by Tom Wolfe and is sourced from 50 Hard Bop Blues Licks You MUST Know.


This lick combines both the major 3rd and the blue 3rd demonstrating the interchangeability of the two tones in the blues solo. The 3rd when played below the root is a 6th below and gives a rich interval, that is punchy in a melody. It is ornamented with two higher tones (the 4th and 5th) and then answered with a blues ornamentation that we explored in a previous lick (#3).
