Thanks, Mike. It would be cool if you could show how some of these licks fit into some popular songs. Some of these licks are “major” in flavor, while others are “minor/bluesy”. I like the bluesy ones, but they don’t seem to fit well with the couple songs I tried to fit them into. But I just started playing with them. They all have their place, I’m sure.
Sure, let me think about how to incorporate that into a lesson.
What songs did you try to put the bluesy licks in?
It’s possible it wasn’t the correct song or it could be the “place” within the song that wasn’t working.
One lesson I’ve already got that some of the bluesy licks would work well in is Shady Grove (capo 2).
You could add a lick in measure 9-10. There’s a space in between the melody there for a nice lick.
Also at the end of your solos is a great spot to throw a lick. So instead of just ending in measure 17 you could add a measure or two and play a lick. This is very common in bluegrass and normally the vocalist would just wait to come in on the next verse/chorus.
If you have any other questions let me know.
