Watch the La Lick online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Play in the Style of Billy Gibbons
La Lick' is another phrase we hear Mr. Gibbons play a lot, it is also a staple lick on many rock guitar players especially Eric Clapton. Please follow the fingering I use in the video as I really think it makes the lick easier to play and slide around. We will see this idea repeated throughout the course. As a fun experiment try hybrid picking the lick as well, it gives the notes a different attack. In the video I am alternate picking as it can be easier sometimes and frankly, hybrid picking this lick was killing me on the day of the shoot! In a gig situation I would certainly hybrid pick it as I love that sound and it's what Billy does.
