This week’s lick is a New Orleans Blues style lick.

The lick makes nice use of bluesy techniques like thirds-moves, hand rolls and top-root harmonized blue-note phrases.

Image in the video splits the lick up in three parts –

  1. Thirds walks (G Blues to C)
  2. Hand roll (G with blue note, landing on C)
  3. Top-root harmonized blue-note phrase (“a,” “b-flat,” “b,” all harmonized with a “g” on top)
