QwikLicks are a FREE lesson series for all membership levels at Creative Guitar Lessons in the QwikLicks Series run through a short collection of guitar licks covering all types of playing styles, famous artist's playing styles and guitar techniques...

Episode #029 covers three "A" Major licks.

In lick one an open "A" string is used to begin a scale phrase that travels up the neck into the 5th position applying the Pattern #2, #3 and #4 scale shapes.

Lick two tears into a double-stop bend at the start of this rapid 16th-note run of tones that reaches into a 6th interval double stop idea at 7th and 9th frets.

Lick three uses two examples of essentially the same lick to apply the important country sound of the "b3" tone. In lick 3a, the phrase applies intervals of the major 2nd and the minor 3rd. In lick 3b, the intervals switch to focusing on the minor 3rd and major 3rd.
