Blues Turnarounds Lick 2 - Robert Renman
Here is turnaround lick number 2, played in the key of A. This lick work well as regular blues lick too, just skip the last 3 notes, and it sound good as a "normal" blues lick anywhere in blues. Part of the reason for this is that this one is played one note at time.

Many other turnarounds have two or three-note arpeggios. The Turnaround #1 on this site is an example of a three-note arpeggio, for example.

One strong reason why a lick like this works well as a turnaround are those last three notes. These three notes kind of wrap up the whole lick in the V-chord. Licks that end like this, where it is obvious it is being finished of on the V-chord, will work great as turnaround licks.

The tab, notation and pdf files are my own work and represent my interpretation of the songs. These files are put together and formatted in Notepad, transformed to MS Word and converted to pdf format to save or print the composition. And, if available, a link back to the Tutorial. Tab files with references to any artist are not meant to be actual transcriptions of copyrighted material.

The lick samples are gathered from talented online teachers; and the related audio clips are extracted from their tutorial pages. Many tabs have been transposed in the Key of Am - at the 5th fret (a popular key when playing the Blues) or the Key of Em - the "guitar key" (all open strings belong to this scale and the most common key for Delta Blues).
