Does anyone have any good song recommendations to practice adding licks into your rhytm playing?
I was looking at Layla by CLapton, but it’s not quite as mixed as I was hoping for.
Is Jimi Hendrix too advanced?
Hoi Jonathan,
With the blues licks lessons there is a great backing track at the bottom of the reading text…I put them on regularly and it works really well with the blues licks…no idea if you mean exactly this,…but with many licks, at least this works well…
Welcome here and wish you lots of fun,
Greetings, Rogier

What a great lesson for a beginner at this stuff. Really enjoyed this one. :+1:

Hi Jonathan and others
Now that this thread is floating to the surface … this is a very nice one to practice with and has quite a few variations in versions…

Boom Boom John Lee Hooker

But I practice these lessons from Justin almost daily… man man you can be busy and combine this for a long time :sunglasses:


Did this lesson yesterday and it’s great grade 3 stuff. Exactly the stuff I want to be learning.

2-3 new chords and the hardest 7 chord (B7)
Rhythm and riffs
Tricky thumb and finger rhythm with mutes
Sounds cool

Loving it. Will take a while to master though!

Well, Justin asked for some videos of people playing it in the lesson. So here’s me: Solo Blues set piece from Grade 3 - JK

I love this lesson!

Hi there, I have a super newbie question: I was practicing with the Guitar Pro file and just noticed the symbol at the end of the sheet. First time I see it. Can someone explain what it is?


Thank you

Looks like a fermata to me.
