10 Blues Licks in the Style of BB King – A Complete Solo
In this lesson, I show how to play a full solo over a 12-bar blues in the style of BB King. All licks are in the key of C, and use the major and minor pentatonic scales.
I have other lessons out there that show how to play BB King licks over specific parts of a 12-bar blues. This is the lesson that puts it all together. I show how to play through an entire solo from beginning to end, breaking down each lick, and explaining the theory behind them.
I talk about all the fundamentals of the theory behind jamming over the 12 bar blues. It basically comes down to playing the major notes over the 1 chord, and minor notes over the 4 and 5 chords. There are some tricks to this, and some ways to break the rules. I talk about that in this lesson.
So, at the end of this lesson, you should have an arsenal of very tasteful licks, and an idea of how to use them.
Thanks for watching!
