Watch the Swingin' The Grass: 1 online guitar lesson by Ray Nijenhuis from 50 Western Swing Licks You MUST Know

The next two examples both show a fast run in the key of G, with a lot of string skipping and ringing open strings, bluegrass-ish. In this first one - lick number 49 - the emphasis is a little bit more towards chromatics with the major 6 and 7th added for a jazzy flavor.
