Albert King, like our other kings of the blues, had a unique way to approach the turnaround in a 12 bar blues. His approach was to play his minor pentatonic blues licks from the I chord up a whole step. This outlines the notes of a V9 chord, which gives his licks a very unique and fresh sound. Let's take a look at how we can approach this idea and make it our own.
