If you are interested in the theory behind the licks our bonus lick notes contains extra little nuggets of information and tips about the theory and techniques you may encounter such as: harmonic minor scales, super-locrian scales, diminished scales, altered arpeggios, chromatic notes, the blues scale, dominant chords and arpeggios, superimposing chords and more.
