Blues Guitar Solo in G - Lick #2

The next few guitar licks will be put together to form a basic blues guitar solo in G. The backing track is from Pete Anderson  called "Talking My Baby Down". It is one of his contributions to the blues guitar backing tracks for the King of The Blues Competition. Used with permission. You can download the backing track and chord  progression here: http://gc.guitarcenter.com/kingoftheblues/tracks/  To hear some of Pete's great blues guitar playing check out his website:http://www.peteanderson.com/ Thanks to Pete for letting me  use this great track.
Our second guitar lick is played over the  C9 chord the fifth and sixth bars in this 12 bar blues. The lick begins by leading into the C9 chord a half step above the chord and then employs notes from the G Blues scale finally resolving to the G note which is the fifth of the C chord.
