Lick of the Week Lesson 8
This fairly straightforward lick is a blues type run using B Mixolydian over a Dominant 7th chord. In bar 1 there is a grace note at the 10th fret on the 2nd string that slides up to the 12th fret before vibrato is applied. In bar 2 there is a half step bend and release which eventually leads to a second sliding grace note from the 7th to the 8th fret on the 3rd string. The lick finishes on an A note which is the b7 of B.
