British Blues Rock - Thursday - Week 4

Today's lick is one of the earliest British blues-rock phrases to presage the heavy metal genre. It has attitude and aggression, borrowed from the Mississippi Delta and transplanted into English soil. The lick is played in E over a droning and ambiguous E pedal. The drone quality is captured in the lick with the initial and final resounding open low E-string notes. The melody is derived from the E Minor Pentatonic Scale (E-G-A-B-D) and is situated in the 7th position, as if based on an E minor chord with a 5th-string root. An important aspect of this lick is the wide string bending in measure two. This bend is a minor third distance (1 ½ frets) and adds a wailing sound to the line, emphasized by the wide-triplet (quarter-note triplets) rhythmic phrasing.
