Micro Lesson 204: "G Major" Country & Western Lick

Welcome to... "Micro-Lesson 204"

This Micro Lesson runs through a speedy, "Albert Lee," style Country Western Lick in, "G Major." 

The lick begins on the 5th string and descends chromatically before ascending across 4th, 3rd and 2nd guitar strings. 

Once at the upper 1st string, we use embellishments around the tones of a "G Major" arpeggio moving into the Root, 3rd and 5th chord tones of a "G Major" chord. 

The movements happen quickly and operate with a majority of pull-off's across the chord tones. The lick isn't exactly complex, but rather the challenge revolves around building speed with the part. 

Developing the quick-pace at where this lick should be performed is where a metronome comes in as being vital to the aspect of speed building. Begin at a slow pace at first, (where you can play the part perfectly). Then turn up the tempo until you gradually achieve the right pace with the line. Be sure that you have memorized the lick prior to pushing up the tempo of the parts. Enjoy!
