Lead Blues Phrase in the Key of E

Today we are back in the woodshed working on a blues guitar solo lick in the key of E.  This is a really bluesy Jimi Hendrix/Johnny Winter style lick that is actually four different licks put together and rolled into one.  You can learn this phrase “as is” and benefit from it, or you can dissect it and use the individual fragments in your playing as well.  Music is often identified as a language and we guitarists communicate in the language of music by using musical phrases.  The goal for the beginner and intermediate blues player is to put together longer phrases (or sentences) so that they can make more elaborate statements on their instruments.
