Blind Lemon Jefferson - Fast Repeating Lick

Aug 12th, 2022

In this lesson I'll show how to take a simple, but very cool lick from Blind Lemon Jefferson and use it in a modern electric blues context. The lick comes from his song "That Crawlin' Baby Blues", and while the song itself feels very inaccessible to players who never studying fingerstyle country blues, there are still licks and phrases we can learn from it, without having to learn his entire style.
