British Blues Rock - Wednesday - Week 4

Today's lick is a classic blues-rock phrase. This ascending serpentine melody makes use of a strong musical procedure known as a sequence. A sequence is the repetition of a pattern on different scale steps during the course of a line. The lick relies exclusively on the E Minor Pentatonic Scale (E-G-A-B-D) situated in the 12th position, and is played over a crushing D-to-E chord progression. In this example the repeated three-note pattern is a triplet figure which is moved incrementally in an ascending direction (D-B-D, E-D-E, G-E-G, etc.) toward a final dramatic high note, G. Variations of this sequence lick have appeared in virtually every rock guitar soloist's style since the late 1960s, and is an immortal fixture of the guitar lexicon.
