We can learn from the blues keyboard masters such as Gene Harris, Jimmy Smith, and Oscar Peterson by incorporating added notes into our blues playing.

Add notes on top of your melodies by doubling intervals of thirds, fourths, and sixths.

Check out this lick and try playing it over a blues in a key of your choice!

If you have questions or suggestions for a Lick Of The Week you would like us to do, please leave them in the comments down below.

Happy Practicing!
