Aynsley Lister: 20 Gritty Blues Licks!

20 Gritty Blues Licks

A fresh take on Classic blues licks with the raw gritty vibe of rock. Aynsley Lister returns with these 20 mean blues licks that will add some aggressive spice to your own blues solos!

Aynsley plays and thinks like a true pro in these licks, and you can too if you learn along with the pack! Utilising all the best tools for improvising blues guitar, Aynsley uses call and response ideas, blues phrasing, open licks, double stops, leaving space, using the whole neck, a wide range of dynamics, repetition/variation and so much more! Technique wise you'll be using hybrid picking, bending, pedal notes, staccato and legato phrases, vibrato, open strings, slides and a whole host of others!

With 3 different sections to the backing track you have a whole world of ideas to explore in this package. We start with the build up, where Aynsley establishes the blues licks and builds the tension and excitement up. In this section you can get used to the track and feel out some of your favourite blues licks, or jam the awesome ones in the package.

Next comes the slow section, Aynsley reflects this in his use of much softer dynamics and using the space well. This section is your chance to create some contrast in your own solos and leave room for your guitar lines to breathe a little.

Lastly comes the full on blues rock groove where Aynsley digs in bringing out the grit and aggression that works so well in this context. This final section is your opportunity to cut loose and let the solos rip! Aynsley has provided plenty of rocking ideas in these licks that you can incorporate into your own jams over this fantastic rock track recorded by a live band - so it's your chance to take center stage with a collection of pro musicians and show us what you've got!

As ever, we have included everything you need to practise and perfect the material in this package. There are video and audio tracks for you to watch/listen and study, accurately transcribed TAB/notation for you to analyse and master, and backing tracks for everything! We've even included some text notes to help you really get these parts down!
