Psychedelic 60s - Friday - Week 5
Psychedelic '60s - Miller @ Monterey Pop Festival|
The Moby Grape volunteered to be the first band to play on Saturday at the '67 Monterey Pop festival which featured bands like Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, Janis Joplin, Booker T & many others. This week will feature some of the first licks played at this historic event.
I used this lick often when I played with the Grape. Peter (Lewis) would often take off on a single chord fingerpicking pattern while Bob (Mosley) pounded on a single string on his bass. This allowed me the freedom to explore and create new patterns without being distracted by chord changes. Today's lick uses the A Minor Blues scale which progressively climbs notes in the scale pattern while jumping back to a key note based either on the 7th fret/5th string or 7th fret/4th string.
