I learned this cool closed position blues lick tonight. Closed position means that you can move the lick around and the fingering stays the same. It's tough at first moving things around and getting them int he right keys (as you can see me struggle with int he video). But with practice I'm sure it'll get easier and second nature. The cool thing about closed licks is that it makes improvising in different keys a lot easier. Let me know if anyone tries it.

@fiddlinsteudel very cool!  I really don't understand the purpose of licks.  When exactly are licks used?

Thanks everyone glad folks like it.

 

@Schaick Licks are used in improvising. So music like Jazz, blues, bluesgrass, etc. Improvising is making your own melody up over a song and it's chord changes.
