Watch the Masonic Double online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 50 Country Masters Licks You MUST Know
This is a double stop lick taken from guitar virtuoso Brent Mason who is an A-list Nashville session player. He is known to be part of a group called the players, who play on the majority of records that come out of Nashville. He is an amazing guitarist who has been on a ton of chart-topping hits as a session player. He is hugely influential in part due to the sheer number of recordings he is on. He plays similarly to Jerry Reed using a thumb pick and fingernails. Brent is a great rock player and he is one of the first modern players to really marry the rock sound with the country sound in a really smooth way. So this lick has him playing a double stop line through an A major train beat groove. We are going to use the same pattern starting on three different notes of the A minor pentatonic scale.
