Watch the Tuckered Out online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Sometimes playing over something happy can be much more difficult than something darker and I wish I had the answer as to why. The chord progression here is basically "Can't You See?" by the Marshall Tucker band. Southern Rock? Yup, that cool happy sounding, bluesy, rock, country, mix that if you're not used to can get you into a world of trouble come solo time. This lick introduces the dominant pentatonic scale. What's that? Well take a minor pentatonic scale and raise the 3rd. So we have R, 3, 4, 5, b7. I have handed you the rod, now we learn how to fish.
