A quick shot of creativity for the blues guitarist. If you're stuck in a rut or just want some fresh blues guitar material to learn, this simple app treats you to 25 of the very best minor pentatonic licks, all over the fretboard.
There are five licks for each of the five pentatonic shapes (25 in total). Each one highlights the most useful, musical features of each position. Every lick is played with both a click track and a backing track to help you hear the notes in context. You can loop sub-sections of the lick to help you focus on specific phrases and speed up your learning.
To further enhance your playing the app features an improvisation mode that lets you play along to the lick for two bars and then immediately follows up with two bars of backing track so that you can practise playing your own improvised answering phrase. This is a great way to incorporate licks into your own playing and expand you musical vocabulary.
Also included is an introduction from Joseph giving a background to the licks, an explanation of how to use the five pentatonic shapes musically and a guide to practising effectively to incorporate the licks into your own playing.
