as the title says, i want to learn some easy but still fun and exciting blues licks. ive been playing guitar for about 8 months and have been primarily working on classic rock stuff, i.e floyd, zeppelin, hendrix, beatles, that sort of stuff. im asking for something someone of my short playing time can handle. thanks all.

BB King. BB King tunes are quite easy to play since he's got a slow hand. He's not really fast (in fact, not at all) like Stevie Ray or the others. The only real problem with playing in the style of BB King, is that you need to have a tone like him, which is hard to accomplish (else you can't achieve playing in his style) and you need to work a shitload on vibrato.

Fast tunes might be difficult for you.

I would recommend ROBBEn Ford,hes one of the best out there EVER and i was privileged to see him play live in NYC 2x,phenomenal!,chk his website www.robben ford.com for concert dates/bio/songs,if like many you never heard of him YOU NEED TO START LISTENING,hes primarily blues with strong jazz influences;hes the master in my opinion,no one touches his phrasing,timing and guitar virtuosity.

i assume that you are fully aware of the minor pentatonic (blues) scale? learn that, in say the key of A and all of the various runs on the neck in that key, that will be a great start to blues licks. once you have mastered that key, move on to others.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

UG has a great "blues tutorial" sort of video. It's got a few licks (which are very easy) and a pretty good backing track.

Have a LOOK.

Most people on UG are teenage boys who think that the only way they can assert their 'dominancy' is by making others feel low and bossing them around. More than likely in real life they are subject to bullying.
True?
