Bb 12 Bar Blues Lick

Here is another 12 bar blues guitar lick over the backing track from the last post. Used with permission of www.freejamtracks.com

This guitar lick is based around the 4th shape of the minor pentatonic scale for a more advanced use of this position you can hear Eric Clapton use this a lot in his later blues material. We are in the key of Bb but playing in the B position because the guitar is tuned down a half step. If you don't want to tune down you can play everything on fret lower on the guitar and still accompany the backing track.
