Another Country Guitar Lick
Country guitar licks are fun to learn, and this country guitar lick features more open string ideas. I should really add more country guitar licks as I generally use a telecaster when recording these guitar lick videos and a Fender Telecaster is the ideal guitar on which to play country licks.
A couple of fun turnaround licks have also been included this week. Turnaround licks are important to learn, understand and analyse as many songs use a turnaround in the last couple of bars.
If you really want to understand what you are playing when learning any of these licks, my guitar courses will save you years of learning all the scales, arpeggios, chords and all the technical stuff that you need to know. If you would just like a more in-depth understanding of these licks, be sure to subscribe to my weekly mailing list by filling in your information below.
The weekly analysis of the licks will give you a much greater understanding when playing guitar. The newsletter is completely free and you can opt out at any time if for some reason you do not wish to receive free guitar lessons in your inbox each week.
Country Guitar Open String Guitar Lick
This country guitar style lick uses open strings and chromatic ideas to outline an A7 chord.
You can obviously use this guitar lick when playing country music, but it will still work in other styles of music. Try using this country guitar lick over an A7 chord when you are next playing a blues progression for example. The open strings add a great texture, although they can be difficult to play cleanly.
Turnaround With Chromatic Passing Notes Guitar Lick
This guitar turnaround lick in A major was actually inspired by the song Tico Tico.
The overall lick bears no resemblance to the song, although one of the phrases in Tico Tico gave me the idea for the main melodic material in this particular guitar lick.
Turnaround Guitar Lick In C Major
This turnaround lick in C major users chromatic ideas and arpeggios to outline the chord sounds.
The lick ascends nicely along the guitar fingerboard and is a good study in using diatonic arpeggios taken from the melodic minor scale.
