Watch the Blues: Technique 10 online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from RhythmCraft

Playing in time against this bare bones backing track is going to present a challenge for you because all you'll have to lock into is the downbeat of a bass drum and tambourine. The tendency will be to rush the licks so be mindful and really listen to the beat and stomp along. The main lick is a triplet figure so the aim is to get that feeling smooth and to hear three notes against each quarter note stomp.

This is going to be a great exercise for you if you are a finger picker and you want to be able to play chords and licks within the context of one guitar part. Of course there are many variations I could have shown you but once you get the main lick under your fingers you can add the flavors you hear for yourself.

If you feel really adventurous you could put a slide on your little finger and add single note slide licks while holding down the groove. If you'd like some video on that you could check out my course on TrueFire called Solo Craft.
