Watch the Lick Study 10 online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Beginner Blues-Rock Soloing

I love this lick even though it seems a little bit ham-handed to play. We are really just flattening out our third finger and first fingers to play a double-stop. Part of the fun of this lick is the rub of the notes against each other to create some cool dirty sounds.

This lick goes back to Chuck Berry and the fantastic introduction to Johnny B. Goode. I highly recommend checking out a collection of Chuck Berry's greatest hits. Great singing, songs, and of course, guitar playing. His influence on all modern guitar players is undeniable.
