Adding Interest to the Blues - Example 4

Jody Mac 22 lessons

Lick 4 

This lick is built around an Am arpeggio played over G minor. It sounds fairly outside when played in context due to the first notes in the pattern. Don't overdo it though. An occasional departure from the diatonic key can add interest, but too much makes it hard for the listener to follow your ideas.
