Learning blues licks using a looper
If you're wanting to learn new guitar licks, get yourself a looper. They're affordable and the good ones have drum patterns built in. My playing got way better when I could play to pre-recorded loops.
Here's my brother playing some blues licks with an RC300 Boss Looper. Our neighbor had a little Italian made amp that she used to import with her husband. We asked if we could try it out . Ashique played the backing tracks using the inbuilt drum machine and played over the top, playing standard licks and phrases. Pretty interesting how easy it is to learn stuff these days - a bit of technology and dedication and you're away!
