Beginner Blues Lick by Jody Worrell is a free blues guitar lesson designed for the guitarist who is just starting to play lead. This simple lick is in the key of A and is based on the Am Pentatonic Scale at the 5th fret. Jody will teach you how to play the lick in detail with note by note instruction. You’ll also learn some places you could add slides, bends, and other accents as you become more comfortable with playing the lick. Jody will trade the lick back and forth with you over a rhythm track so you can hear it in context and work on timing. Learn more about playing lead with the Blues Guitar 101 lesson series featured in our premium membership plan.
