Watch the Ace online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from 50 R&B Licks You MUST Know
A classic lick start with a nice semitone bend to the Eb. The whole tone bend outlines the F chord nicely. I resolve to the Eb in this lick which works really well as the chord it lands on is actually an Eb.
Be careful with the 16th note runs as they can be a little tricky at this tempo.
