The Blues Licks app from JustinGuitar.com brings together over a year's worth of content from Justin's weekly Blues Licks series into a single, easy to use app. Playing blues is a LOT about learning licks and how to use them, so as a blues guitarist you need to be constantly on the look out for new material. This app contains fifty six of the finest blues licks showcasing the styles of famous blues players like B.B.King, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and more.
Justin breaks down each lick in detail in a high quality video describing not only how to play it but also when to use it most effectively. Each lick video includes a performance by Justin at normal and slow speed, followed by a detailed note by note explanation of the notes and techniques used. The final section of each video includes tips from Justin on how the licks work musically and the concepts behind them.
There is music score and TAB for each lick which follows along as the lick is performed. An animated fretboard is also available that clearly shows fingering on a virtual fretboard in real time as Justin performs the lick on video (for both left or right handed players). You can also loop the video playback using the app's controls to target a specific part of the lick when practicing.
Learning to play blues is one of the most fun things you can do on guitar and it's a solid foundation for other styles too. The Blues Licks app from JustinGuitar.com is the perfect way to further your blues education with one of the most popular guitar teachers on the planet!

Ratings and Reviews
Just what I was looking for. Justin is brilliant at explaining guitar techniques and this app is no exception. Each lick has over 5 minutes of tuition which makes them very easy to pick up.
Anything that Justin does is well thought through and imaginative. Easy to use and I like the favorites section as there are a lot of lessons and licks here. Absolute bargain. More apps like this please.
Excellent app, with an incredible catalogue of licks and lessons. Combines good app. design with Justin's excellent teaching and lesson structure. Especially good is the virtual fretboard and notation/tab which can be interchanged.
