Advanced Level Blues Warmup Lick

Nov 18th, 2016

Much of my work at TXBA involves sitting at a computer and working on the website. There are weeks that go by where I barely have time to play guitar. Taking such a long time off can cause your skills to slip. I find that during these periods, it’s helpful to have some warm-up (or calibration) licks that help identify which parts of my technique are slipping. In this lesson, I’ll teach you a lick that ascends and descends through 3 different boxes. At fast speeds, it will expose problems with your picking technique and general sloppiness. At slower speeds, it can be a good technique building exercise for beginner and intermediate players.
