Thanks John! Plenty more on the way for sure. I’m finishing up a Willie Nelson style lesson right now…hope to have that posted this upcoming Monday or Tuesday, and then next will be some more bluegrass licks late next week…probably licks in E this time. Thanks for the comments!

As a complete “lick” beginner, it would be helpful to have the fingerings on the tabs…I’m having a hard time figuring them out. 0.5 is still too fast to write them down, and the sound cuts out at 0.25 speed…

Thanks for the quick response Devin. I understand totally. Been playing guitar for a while and love and enjoy the lessons. Looking forward to when I’ll be able to string these tasty licks fluently together. Country music has always been my favorite.

This is the first lick I learned when I joined CGO. I played it over and over and over until I got it. Lately I had stopped playing it and done other drills but this am I was surfing the library and hit this one again. I still got it. I must be getting better.

Devin. I’m not sure how I’m suppose to use the back tracking the lick 1 in G.

This sounds great when played in a slow bluesy style – with some G minor pentatonic thrown in!

I 100% agree with Joe Wiley’s comment, it’s hard to know when to jump in with the lick, can you possible post an example of how its supposed to sound?
