12 Bar Blues – Licks and Phrases – Key of E

This is a lesson on how to improvise with licks and phrases over a 12 Bar Blues chord progression in the key of E. I’ve written up two sets of solos to give you plenty of ideas for improvising. I also cover the scales I use in 1st and in 7th position. I talk about how to find the “blues” notes and your root notes when playing these scales and how to get a good sense of the triplet or shuffle feel. If you haven’t begun soloing over the blues, this lesson will be great to get you going!
