B.B. King's Guitar Style - Guitar Lesson

Download the jam track used in this lesson at https://www.activemelody.com/lesson/b-b-king-guitar-lesson-understanding-his-approach/ – In this lesson I decided to move past showing you how to play a particular solo and instead focus on learning how BB King approaches the guitar neck when soloing. There are several signature licks that come from the boundaries that I demonstrate in this video. Perfect for a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player.

  10. Man your videos are so helpfull

  11. I can't find this lesson on the website …there must be a second part to this the way it ended made it seem like there's another part…search be king n it doesn't show up

  12. What chords are you playing?

  13. His guitar is singing that's why he doesn't sing and play! haha

  14. great lesson thank

  15. Great Stuff ! super helpful

  16. Follow The Lemming

    Just a heads up BB chose not to sing and play at the same time since his guitar followed a lead vocal line. It's called trading space and its an amazing way of playing blues. Sing and let the guitar follow up and hit it home.

  17. How do you get that sound?

  18. your killin bb. he cant sing and play at the same x:)
