The feel of the slow swing, or shuffle blues really has a way of helping blues licks played over that feel come alive! This slow-blues feel really allows for the opportunity for applying several traditional guitar techniques. These can include; long vibrato sustains, triplet runs, double-stop phrases and plenty of nice legato lines.
In the video lesson, I've put together a collection of four (4) of my favorite slow-blues licks that fuse together sounds you might hear from players like; Albert Collins, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughn or Albert King. In the video, I get the camera zoomed in on the fingerboard and demonstrate my collection of Slow-Blues Shuffle licks with included on-screen TAB.
