Watch the That's Bad! online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Play in the Style of Billy Gibbons
This lick is another example of something I discovered while researching this course. In the solo section of "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide" Billy plays some cool funky stuff! As in the previous lick the importance of keeping the right-hand in constant motion to make this sound right is paramount. Check out how the groove is based around the upbeats and see as you keep your right hand in constant motion these upbeats are played with a naturally occurring a pick. If the right-hand were not in constant motion, I assure you this groove would probably not sound right. Notice how I have a muted note on my downbeat and then I fret with my left hand on the upbeat as it coincides with the up pick. The grouping gets a little tricky here as we have to switch over to the 16th notes in the middle of it. Think about just doubling up the time and keeping the hand yet again in constant motion. Great exercise is to mute strings while playing constant eighth notes, switch the 16th notes, then switch back to eighth notes.
