My goal is to be able to sit down and jam with folks even if I’m not familiar with the songs they’re playing. To do that, not only do you need a lot of licks in your arsenal, you need to be able to move from lick to lick fluidly with little to no thought. My problem has always been that when I learn backup licks, my brain has trouble using them out of the order I learned them in.
So, I took several of Ben’s Bog O’ Licks lessons and started building a TEF file with those licks mixed up in several different patterns. The idea is to allow my fingers to break out of the “Licks 1, 2, 3, 4” progression and mix things up on their own.
Also, I realized this morning that now that I’ve made this file, I can go back and replace licks I’m comfortable with with new ones that are more complicated, or I can just add on to it and make the file progressively more complex.
Anyway, I hope someone else will find this useful.
