    Here's a funky blues lick in the style of Matt Schofield. As you know, blues doesn't have to be a shuffle - this lick has a straight or even feel, but you can of course play it with a shuffle feel if you want. It's gonna sound quite different, but hey it might sound awesome over the right tune? You decide

    Thanks guys. For those who are wondering, I recently lost my wife. I’m trying to dig into guitar more now. Practicing more and maybe starting a band.

    Sincere condolences. May she Rest In Peace. Please keep the pro first class clips coming. They can give you some distraction during your mourning process. Read about the steps as this might help you to anticipate what’s possibly on the horison.
    Your a true pro.

    One thing that makes your licks stand out is how damn singable they always are. Which is a lesson in itself!
