Blues Licks – level I

Here are some beginning blues licks. They're great for blues and rock! It's best if you learn your blues scale in the key of E first. (Hint: it starts with your first finger on the 12th fret). Practice these licks one at a time on repeat. Once you learn them, you can play them in any order that you think sounds good and you can move them to any key just by moving your pattern along the fretboard. To make them sound bluesy, play your eighth notes with the shuffle feel.
