Song Info  BB King Style Lick 1 - Robert Renman
BB King Style Lick 1 - Robert Renman
Guitar Lesson Overview

Here is a B.B. King style blues lick, played in the key of A.

BB King uses this box A LOT when he plays, but it is only a starting point for creating ideas. You can add any extra notes that you think sound good. In this lick, you can see that the note C# (fret 9 on the E string) is added to create a nice little motif.

That's how you should think of these boxes, patterns, etc - they are reference points for creating musical lines or ideas.
