This position is extremely useful, and of course, it’s not ONLY a turnaround lick. In piano playing circles, however, it is one of the most recognizable licks of all, and so much so that it’s almost become a cliché. Ray Charles was a master of this lick, but you can also hear it in the playing of other piano greats such as Jerry Lee Lewis, and some of the great New Orleans players like Fats Domino and Dr. John.

This was one of the first blues chord “inflections” that I discovered in my formative years, listening to folks like Mike Bloomfield and T-Bone Walker. It’s very easy to imitate the sound, but it took me a while to actually discover that these slides came from 9th chords!!

The combination of shapes and scales on the guitar is probably the single most important tool to the improviser. Even when I first taught myself these kinds of positions, I was not yet truly aware of the fact that I was essentially creating a “double-exposure” of scale positions that could be easily taught.

The C7 chord position is one of the most useful and fun chords on the guitar, and can be a real revelation once you get the hang of it. The exercise I'll teach you today that uses this position also happens to be one of the best left-hand chord exercises you can learn.

This is an important subject. Too many guitar players fall into ruts or bad habits when they get all-too familiar with licks that they play almost with no thought involved. This is what starts to happen with the mundane and plain old “turnaround” licks so many are guilty of overplaying.
