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.
Music Corners in general
These weekly one hour sessions are designed to give us the tools to self-improve and widen our knowledge in the following general areas: rhythm, reading music, improvising, understanding music theory, getting good tone, how to play a solo, how to play with a group, how to develop your ear, learning the rules of music through transcribing the history of a genre. Our tutor, Jamie McCredie, will share key things he has learned over years that have helped to make him the professional guitarist and musician he is today.
Relevant materials will be available for each session.
This lesson is most suitable for intermediate players with a tad of music theory/knowledge but players of all standards will register some lightbulb moments and pick up some great ideas and approaches.
