I talk about counting ALL the time… and I’m well aware of that…
However, I’ll be the first to admit that there are some times, particularly in a slow blues, where counting is pretty tough – if not impossible. See Blues Guitar Unleashed solo #4 as an example 🙂
When that happens, your options become limited and you really have to focus on one littler part of the lick at a time… just one beat. And you simply have to play it and try to make it fit.
I’ll show you how I approach these types of licks in the video.
