Long Walk Down Blues Alley
Lick 5

This lick is really two licks put together, and it ends as many licks do, with the
minor 3rd sliding up to the major third. The sadness of the minor third gives
way to the uplifting major third. When you play that first double stop, notice
that it's not that far away from Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode".

In truth, the difference between western swing, country, bluegrass, jazz, and
rock 'n' roll is not in the notes but in the feel.

The more laid back, the more jazzy, the more straight the more country…but
the notes are pretty much the same!
