Watch the Honk That Tonk online guitar lesson by Ray Nijenhuis from 50 Western Swing Licks You MUST Know

This E7 to A lick would fit right in a 50s honky tonk country solo. The use of open strings is very reminiscent of the way Billy Byrd played when he was with Ernest Tubb and the Texas Troubadours. Note that it is played staccato and there are no hammer-ons or pull-offs.
