Watch the Go-Getter online guitar lesson by Jay Williams from 50 Soul Guitar Licks You Must Know

Lick number 4 is another example of a blues riff in an early 60ties R&B style. It uses the Dorian scale and it’s a syncopated 8th feel that gives it a jumpy feeling. Listen to Sam & Dave’s version of it. Mabon Lewis Hodges better known as ‘Teenie’ Hodges, guitarist of the HI Rhythm Section, was co-writer of the song. And Rory Gallagher also covered it.
