Plug N Play Blues, Continued
In this lesson, we’re going to reach back to the very beginnings of BGI and revisit MICRO LICKS. Using the rhythm learned in lesson 1 of Plug N Play Blues, we’ll begin plugging in a few different MICRO LICKS to really make this rhythm part shine.
The trick about acoustic blues is learning how to play fluidly. By that I mean, you need to really work on your ability to switch in and out of rhythm and lead parts.
This will improve with time, but I highly recommend focusing on a lesson like this one and working with a metronome.
The metronome never lies.
It will help you get a sense of when your rhythm to lead switch is in time and when it isn’t.
I hope you enjoy this lesson and I hope you’ll join me for lesson #3 where we turn things up a notch with a study of turnarounds.
See you in Lesson 3!
