Bluesy A7th lick:The blues is a wonderful thing. Here is a nice little lick
to keep all our blues friends happy. It starts on an G# and ends on an A and has nothing
weird in it. It's a little bit jazzy and should work in any kind of A shuffle, bluesy,
turnaround situation that you may find yourself in. It's kind of blues scale, and kind
of Mixolydian (or A7th to the uninitiated).
Country lick:This lick is a little country thing that uses open strings to
create a ringy almost pedal steel type of sound. It means you have to jump strings to
catch the open notes which takes a little practice. It's in the key of D but starts with
a run on A7th which resolves to D. This is a very common technique used by country players
to create that Nashville kind of sound.
