I'm a beginner and this is a lick I learned a couple of months ago. You can normally get this lick down in about a half an hour. I think it's Sonny Boy's, but I've heard Mayall and just about eveyone else use it. d=draw and b=blow. I learned on key of C.
4d 3d 4b
Very simple and very effective. You string this together 6 or 8 times. As fast as you can without any hesitation between the 4b and 4d as you repeat. Start slow and clear and build up your speed. Once you speed it up you will recognize this riff.
You want it smooth and to flow. This is my contribution to help other beginners. If anyone wants to enlighting me with some of their riffs you can e-mail them directly to me or post on this site for others as well. Harp On!
