Watch the Reedy online guitar lesson by Rich Maloof from 50 Acoustic Guitar Licks You MUST Know

If you've never heard Jerry Reed play guitar, you might not realize the guy driving the trailer in "Smokey and the Bandit" was one of the world's most accomplished guitarists. He opened his trademark tune "The Claw" with a lick similar to this, mixing doublestops, hammers, slides, and blue notes. Notice that it also mixes fretted and open strings, which really helps the lick pick up some speed. When it comes to playing like Reed, this really is just the very tip of the iceberg.
