A Spectacular Chris Cain Blues Lick

published 5 months ago by Texas Blues Alley

Sometimes I hear a lick that makes me drop whatever I’m doing and listen to it (or watch it) over, and over, and over. This is one of those licks. Chris Cain is a monster blues player with a style that sounds a bit like B.B. King, but mixed with a bunch of other stuff. This lick is the perfect example of why he is such a fantastic player. It’s played over the end of a 12-bar chorus, covers the turnaround in style, and leads you into another chorus with an incredible repeating lick that I’ve never heard before.
