Watch the E Blues Licks To Fortify Your Blues Jam Chops online guitar lesson by Jeff Scheetz from Blues Jam Survival Guide

The open E minor pentatonic position is essential for a blues player to get down. From the fast paced licks in a song like SRV's Scuttle buttin', to more of a slow John Lee Hooker feel, the open E position is used time and again. So first work on the basic scale, and then start incorporating some of these licks. The open strings make great opportunities for fast hammer ons and pull offs, so really get it down so you can do it effortlessly.
