Watch the Good Man Feelin' Bad online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from 50 R&B Licks You MUST Know
I think this lick sounds like someone saying something to the effect of '"Why won't you listen to me, baby, we can figure it out"! Sound crazy to you? Well good music speaks and letting the guitar talk sometimes is a good thing!
This lick is derived from the E minor pentatonic scale and then I switch over to the E major pentatonic scale. A great way of playing R&B ideas.
