Old Rock Licks is a free lesson video lesson by Peter Vogl that will teach you a couple of old Chuck Berry style standard rock licks in A. In the video we will use the backing track "old rock in A", which is track 14 from the Let's Jam! Blues and Rock CD. Most of these ideas stem from the minor pentatonic scale.
Let’s review the A Minor Pentatonic Scale.
Heres an old riff that Chuck Berry can probably take credit for but has been used in almost every genre of music.
Heres a variation on that same lick.
Heres an even harder variation of that same lick.
Now heres one more old rock and roll lick.
Now lets hear what these licks sound like in context with track 14 of the Let's Jam! Blues and Rock CD.
Classic Rock Licks by Jody Worrell is a downloadable Quicktime video lesson that will look at a group of classic rock and roll licks that could be associated with such players as Chuck Berry, Scotty Moore, and James Burton to name a few!
