This is a three-part series on how to use licks in bluegrass songs. Part one focuses on fill-in licks, and how they can be used to add energy and style to a melody. In part two, we abandon the melody altogether and learn how licks can be used instead when they follow the chord progression. Finally, in part three, we will study how to make small changes to licks to make them fit into a song better.
Hey folks, thanks for coming along for this cool holiday adventure with Eli Gilbert and I. We got a ton of positive feedback so we might even, god forbid, do it again sometime. Just in case you missed out, the 12 Days Of Licksmas was a series where Eli Gilbert and myself traded bluegrass guitar licks and banjo licks daily for 12 days straight.
Now that the holidays are over you can enjoy all 24 videos from the complete series below!
