Lick #3

Affectionately known as the "Jimmy Yancey Lick", this lick became associated with Jimmy Yancey because of his abundant use of it. It can be played in 6ths or 3rds and is an essential part of the Boogie Woogie, Blues and Country styles.

Try using your 4th finger instead of your 5th finger on black keys.
