Cascading Blues – ML005

Cascading Blues – Mini Lesson: 005

Helpful Tips

Learn to play the blues with cascading licks! A cascading lick is a lick that’s played in a descending pattern. These licks can be played using fretted notes, open strings, or a combination of both to create a bell-like tone (a.k.a. The Campanella Effect).

In this lesson, you’ll learn three cascading licks that cycle around a 12 bar blues chord progression. The goal for this piece is to keep the tempo steady and gradually work to increase it until you reach your max speed.
