2000 Blues Licks That Rock!

by Lawrence Fritts
The 2,000 licks in this book are organized into 36 chapters. These chapters explore the different pitches, rhythms, techniques and methods of phrasing found in blues and blues-influenced guitar solos and fills. Use these licks to deliver heavy, yet ear-catching riffs. These can be played along with the 43 backing tracks included on the 3 CDs that come with this book. They are all written in the key of a C blues, while the backing tracks are played in the keys of E, A, D, G, C, F, and B. A handy table is included that shows how to transpose up or down from C to other blues keys. The backing tracks (performed by a live band in a studio) are all in the 12-bar blues form, but the licks do not necessarily have to be played over specific chords in the progression. 424 pages.

400 Smokin’ Bluegrass Guitar Licks

by Eddie Collins
Know only 20 solo licks? How about 50? 100? 200? If that’s all, then you need this book, designed to help you improvise bluegrass style solos. 400 licks are played over standard chord progressions; the use of licks sometimes will take precedent over stating the melody. The progressions used are based primarily on common vocal numbers. Some of the licks included are: two measure G & D licks, blue note licks, pentatonic scales, licks with slurs, boogie licks, moveable licks, embellishing a fiddle tune, practice loops of “Salt Creek” and “Billy in the Lowground” and many more. Companion book: 400 Smokin Bluegrass Banjo Licks (#00123175)
