Watch the B Ionian 3 online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from 50 Modal Licks You MUST Know
I'm working in a B Major Scale shape with it's tonic located on the 5th string, 2nd fret for this lick. I'm moving around the fretboard to broaden your vocabulary on the fretboard.
The lick is pretty simple but the goal here is not complexity, it's musicality! You'll notice I mix up my phrasing by starting gracefully with 8th note ideas that are then followed by 16th note runs to add pace. Think about your rhythmic ideas as much as melodic ideas when creating your own licks over this progression..they are equally as important to a good phrase or motif.
