Hi all countryguitar players! I´m back again with a new lesson full of Smokin´Hot Country Guitar Licks, this month in the key of E. Just like when playing in G, all the open strings in standard tuning are available.
This solo is a lot inspired by Brent Mason and Johnny Hiland. (actually you´ll notice that I have borrowed some notes from the Brent Mason tune “Hot Wired”, but with a different fingering..) The key of E is great when it comes to playing long chromatic runs, like the ones in bar 3 and 4. When playing these kind of runs you´ll have to find a picking technique that works for you. I normally use the same picking pattern with my flatpick as many thumbpick-users do; middle, pick, ringfinger,pick, middle, pick, ringfinger, pick….
Good luck, and see you next month! Please visit my Youtube-channel for more TWANG…
Best wishes from Marcus, Sweden.
