How to End a Bluegrass Song with Style

Lesson ID: A0211

In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn a fun bluegrass guitar lick in G that you can use at the end of a guitar solo or at the end of an entire song. I use this guitar lick all the time when I’m jamming with friends. It’s a pretty simple lick, and it sounds best over a key of G chord progression that ends with: D – – – D – – – G – – – G – – – (there are a ton of bluegrass songs that end with two bars of D followed by two bars of G).

First we’ll learn the lick with tablature, and then I’ll show you two examples of how you can use this lick. Don’t forget to download the tablature below this lesson video, and check out the Guitar Lick Library for more licks like this one.
