Harmonic Minor Scale Guitar Licks
Merry Christmas! Harmonic minor scale guitar licks are not directly related to Christmas, although plenty of Christmas songs have chord progressions that give interesting harmonic and melodic possibilities. Embrace the harmonic minor scale and look for places you can utilise these sounds, whether playing Christmas songs or not.
You do need a good understanding of the major scale to help unlock the melodic possibilities of other scales such as the harmonic minor scale, although these licks will at least give you some new sounds with which you can experiment in your improvisation.
I have a weekly newsletter that analyses the vertical video guitar licks and gives tips and ideas how to learn and use these licks. If you would like to receive the information to help you progress in your guitar playing, fill in the form below. No payment is required, so take advantage of this free resource.
The newsletter will also notify you when new guitar resources are available.
Harmonic Minor Scale - Lick 11
The harmonic minor scale is great fun to experiment with when playing guitar. The exotic sound of this scale creates a strong melodic pull when playing over dominant 7th chords.
These types of licks also sound great when playing acoustic guitar, so be sure to experiment with the harmonic minor scale licks on a steel string acoustic guitar if you have access to one.
More licks will be on the way soon in all styles, using a variety of scale types and guitar chord voicings so you can add new ideas to your lick repertoire.
