Watch the Outrun The Train online guitar lesson by Ladd Smith from Modern Nashville Guitar
I talk a bit about how I've been collecting these 'hot licks' for years. I also talk about how to mix improvisation with phrases that you pick up on your journey as a player. You'll notice the 'pick-up' notes are basically the same as the first verse but this time into a held bend that we come off of into the 'behind-the-nut' bend lick again. I speak briefly of one of my heroes Don Rich, lead guitarist for Buck Owens. Check out all of his work. Don innovated so much stuff in the Country Tele world and should never be forgotten. Then we're moving on into this awesome ascending run in A, it's one of my favorites using banjo rolls with a very Jerry Reed style phrasing.
