Sheet Music: Lick #1 from A Study in Blues Piano

 

Blues/Improv Students:

How’s yo blues?

I’ve had requests for piano notation covering the blues licks in my course, A Study in Blues Piano.

That course is video-based, and teaches from a chord-based improvisation point of view.

I sometimes resist providing notation for improvisation-focused courses, because it can almost promote blind imitation, rather than creative playing.

That said, I’ve had a couple of convincing requests lately from students who wanted to have sheet music to supplement this class. As a result, I’ve decided to provided some helpful notation for each of the licks. Ain’t no thing man, I feel you. (Wah?)

Okay! Here’s a downloadable PDF file for Lick #1, “Energy.”

After I finish the notation for all twelve licks, I plan to come back and add tutorial text to support the process of playing from each of these sheets.

FYI: All of these upcoming sheets will be directly downloadable from within A Study in Blues Piano – Focusing on 12 Licks.
