So here is a new concept I'm working on: Short and sweet video lessons that are void of talking about the piece and more about just giving you a starting point to take and make your own.

These will be (primarily at least) licks that are more anchored to a specific chord and not necessarily a key. Why? Because I find these kinds of licks to be extremely versatile for improvisation and as springboards for creativity. 

This particular lick is over an A chord. So you may find it works great in more than just the obvious key of A. The key of E, the key of D, the key of G, ...etc etc... 

You may find that it's a great starting point for another run you like to use, or as a transition from the 1 chord to the 4 chord...or maybe the 2 chord to the 5 chord....or...?

You may dig deeper into the harmonies implied by the double stops and figure out other avenues to explore with the basic outline of the idea.

I encourage you to dig deep and really see how many variables and ideas you can get out of this extremely short piece of music. I also encourage you to share your takes. 

You can respond here in the comments section , in the comments section of my YouTube channel, or even email me directly via the contact tab.

Enjoy!
