Watch the AA Couple of Aces online guitar lesson by Richard Van Bergen from 50 Down Home Blues Licks You MUST Know
This is another lick with doublestops. Very effective with a second guitar playing the low part. You can hear these double stops on several 50's Little Walter songs like 'Can’t Hold Out Much Longer'. The interplay between the two guitars lays down a solid base for the singer/harmonica player. Guys like Louis and Dave Meyers were famous for this and can be heard on numerous records. They called themselves the Aces and they sure were! We’re in the key of A and the lick starts on bar 9 when you go to the V.
