From the earliest country blues singers to the post-modem blues stylists of today there is a bond that unifies these musicians, the language of the blues. One of the most important goals for a blues guitarist is to develop an understanding of the vocabulary of ideas I that can be used to construct and shape an improvised solo.

The basis of developing a vocabulary, along with knowing scales, chords and songs, begins with learning and emulating the licks and phrases of your favorite guitarists. While there are many varieties and shades of the blues, most licks are usually derived from the blues scale and the twelve bar blues form.

Blues Licks offers many classic and melodic examples in each pattern or "box" of the Blues Scale. The licks come from a wide variety of influences such as: BB King, Albert King, Freddie King, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert Collins and Robert Johnson among others. I hope you enjoy playing the examples in Blues Licks, and in doing so will become a better blues guitarist and musician
