Old Rock Licks

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.
