—ABOUT Blues Lesson Lick #10—
I’m proud to present to you my 10th blues lick guitar lesson. In this video, I’ll teach you how to play an easy blues groove in E, with different E minor blues licks on top! We’ll start from a basic (open E chord) groove and add different types of licks with hammer-ons, pull-offs, blues bends and hybrid picking.

Concepts that are present in this blues solo guitar lesson
– playing a blues groove (and licks) by yourself (or a basic rhythm)
– E minor blues scale
– bends, hammer-ons, pull-offs, hybrid picking

– The guitar used is a Gibson ES-335 (pickups 57 classics)
– Amp: Fuchs Blackjack Mk II
– Pedals: TC Electronic The Spark Booster, MXR Carbon Copy, Subdecay String Theory, T- rex Tremster
– Captured w. the Universal Audio Ox

I had a lot of fun making this video, & I sincerely hope that this extended music lesson will provide you with some inspiration and maybe some new E minor blues licks that you can use in your playing!

Thanks a lot for your support!

If you read this entire description, you are awesome! 🤘 So let me tell you something extra: in this video I experimented with recording the live ‘string’ sound of the guitar (If you look closely in the left corner during the intro, you’ll notice an condenser mic recording the live guitar sound). This gave me a ton of technical challenges to overcome (phase stuff etc…), but in hindsight, I’m glad I tried it. Lisen tot Eric Clapton’s Me & Mr. Johnson where you’ll often hear Clapton’s live string sound on top of the amplifier sound. I really like this effect, so that’s why I wanted to try it 😉
