Blues Piano Sheet Music – Lick #1, Solo #1

Blues and Jazz licks, runs, and fills ~ PDF download.


Hello to all Jazz and Blues students!

Today, I’m very happy to announce some new Blues Piano Sheet Music!

This sheet music is based directly on material from my FREE course, ‘A Study in Blues Piano – Focusing on 12 Licks.’

The piece itself, titled Lick #1, Solo #1 (a very creative name), focuses on the first lesson of my class, where we introduce and examine Lick #1.

There’s a 12-bar intro on this sheet (the head), followed by three “graded” 12-bar solos, ranging in difficulty from intermediate to advanced (when played as is – but remember, you are encouraged to modify any or all of it – this is improv after all!)

Next, there is a reprise of the 12-bar intro, and then, a special ending section, which is guaranteed to please!

Solid left-hand support

I’ve included a complete and varied left-hand part, for use and/or study, in the bass clef, covering the entire piece.  *These left-hand chords and patterns are based on the CHORD SYMBOLS provided, which in turn follow the standard chords used in traditional ‘C Blues.’

There are two editions: The first sheet includes musical note-names (letters), as in F#, G, Ab, applied to every note. The second sheet contains the same music, but it does not have the letter-note labels. (Without the letters, the second edition has room for a few helpful markings, things like dynamics, tempo, a bit of phrasing, and such. This copy also looks less crowded, overall.)


It’s not necessary to watch any of the course videos (there’s 12 lessons, each one being dedicated to a single “master lick”), in order to use and enjoy this sheet music! (Conversely, this sheet music is not required for the course itself.  It can, however, provide much insight, inspiration, and ideas, into how you might use this material, in your own solos.)

This sheet music is conceived as a ‘framework of ideas’ for students of jazz and blues. It can, however, also serve as stand-alone performance material, taken note-for-note.

As you may know, the only thing that I actually sell here on, aka ‘Piano With Kent,’ is custom sheet music–each item of which has some extra aspect(s) to it that are educational.

These educational aspects often include musical letter-names for every note, just as with the LETTERED-EDITION of this PDF sheet music that I’m announcing here today.

I also have a growing collection of original sheet music arrangements of popular pieces that were not originally written for piano, which I have arranged and engraved for sale here. Those include ‘Carol of the Bells,’ ‘Swan Lake,’ ‘Canon in D,’ and others!

All of these products can be seen here on my Sheet Music Shop!
