The style of BB King

This session is one of our Music Corner Drop-in series with Jamie McCredie. Generally we run them weekly each Tuesday at 7.30pm and delve into a broad range of subjects relating to technique, theory, know-how, practice or something topical in the guitar world.

This session looks at some of BB King’s classic licks.

NOTE – this has just been moved from Tue 20 July to Thu 22 July

 

Overview

In this session we’ll learn some of BB King’s classic licks, how they work, where they come from, how to knit them together and what techniques you need to understand and practise in order to get that authentic sound.

You’ll take away enough information for you to work and finesse these licks so that you can add them into your improvisations.
