Watch the Look Ma No Pedals online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 50 Country Masters Licks You MUST Know
This lick is a classic pedal steel guitar lick adapted to six string guitar. The idea is to hold a bend and use bends releases to connect third shapes. We are targeting chord tones all the way down the scale. This type of pattern is one of our clichés. It's found in a ton of electric guitar solos. So what I am going to show you here is this pattern moving through an A7 chord targeting all the chord tones of an A7 chord, and then landing back on the I chord, which would be D in this key.
