Devin, now this is cool! I love the format.
yes, this is good,enjoy the positions box diagrams help me with chord voicing withing these scales. I like this ,,keep em coming Devin, don’t be shy! lol
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…
Cool thanks for the suggestion. I’ll keep that in mind for the tabs on future licks. The library is definitely designed for the more advanced lick player but I’ll see what adding in left hand fingering in the tabs might look like. I usually don’t stress too much about the left hand fingering note for note…feel free to change them up if you find an easier and more efficient way, but even still…sometimes I’ll use different fingers for the same exact lick depending on where I’m coming from and where I’m headed next. The more ways you can play the… Read more »
Hi Devin. My internet connection is extremely slow. I therefore download the pdfs and try to watch the full videos if my connection doesn’t conk out during the viewing. Where can I download the advanced tabs? Luv your teaching method
Hey Charles! When you’re watching the videos (if you’re on a laptop or desktop) you can hover over the video player and lower the video quality to 360p at the lower right…try that if you haven’t already…might help with video playback at a slow connection. All the tablature for the advanced bluegrass library licks are currently available in the member area online here at CGO and not download at this point. I’ve had enough people sign up for my $1 trial only to download all my lick tablature and cancel. I know the majority of people are honest and are… Read more »
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.
So far so good. Nice one Devin.
Thanks Chris! I’ll be adding some more backing tracks to the lick library and more licks over the next few days. Stay tuned!
whats the best way to learn all my scales
please tell whats the best is it just to look at the scale charts and memorize them or what
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?
Can we not print out the tabs ?
The tabs in the lick library are only available on screen for now. Let me know if you have any other questions!
it would be nice to hear how you fit the run into the backing track.
A fine lick!
