Lick #9 County Guitar Lick

Here's a basic country guitar lick. This makes for a great little lesson in bending and holding a note. Here the A note on the G string is bent upto B and at the same time the D note on the B string is held. The bend is held while the D note is struck again then released to its original tone and finally pulled off to the open G note.

Lick #3

A country guitar riff. Try altering the speeds at which you play the riff for different effects. Let the notes ring together or try playing them stacatto and you'll get completely different feeling out of the same notes.

Lick #1

First Guitar Lick is a classical sounding picking run in A Minor.


Ok this is a pretty basic explanation. I thought it would be cool to post a new guitar lick everyday with a tab kind of a mini guitar lesson of the day. So that's the idea I'll have the first one up later today and go from there. I don't plan on providing a detailed explanation but if anyone wants clarification on the licks just leave a comment. Cheers.
