Hey there,

I m going through the Blues lesson 1, and found that a lot of things are actually the same as the Fundamentals 1 and 2 but the chords are just changing to make them bluesy + the 12 bar blues concept.

Is there anywhere in Guitartricks lessons where you learn a variety of cool licks to practice (and not chasing a song that has a lick in it), something that would explain how you connect chords with single note picking to make cool arrangement and keeping up with the tempo (and have something less repetitive, giving some color and musicality).

Something like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAPoKkB4wrM

First, if you keep going in the Blues course you will find plenty of challenging material. And there is even material exactly like that video you linked. From Chapter 4:

So I encourage you to keep going in the courses. You can even skip ahead if you are confident that you have the earlier material under your command!

Sure, I've got plenty of tutorials like that. This will depend on your skill level, they start at beginner & get progressively more difficult.

Blues in E For Beginners

E Blues Rhythm & Lead

https://www.guitartricks.com/tutorial.php?input=918

I have 6 of these type.

https://www.guitartricks.com/search.php?query=%22blues+rhythm+%26+lead%22

There are also these that contain bass lines & chord tones with fills. The first one starts with just the basic technique.

Then I start adding turnarounds & licks!

Here are all of them.

Hope that helps you find something you like. Please ask more if necessary & best of success!

I'm looking forward to reaching the Texas Blues stuff. I knew I hung on to my old Strat for a reason...
