I plan to steal my favorite licks from my favorite guitar player.
Posted April 4,2020 in Entertainment.
For most of this month, especially when I am not playing the electric guitar, I will listen to the work of my favorite blues artist and capture inspiration in two forms:
First, by listening to a lot of blues music, I will develop better "ears" and intuition for blues soloists. Ideally, as time goes by, this will allow me to hear what I want to play before playing.
The hope here is not to build a library of pre-made lick sticks that I can piece together, but to find lick sticks that can introduce and unlock new music ideas for me.
