Watch the Pick Up The Pieces online guitar lesson by Jay Williams from 50 Soul Guitar Licks You Must Know
In lick number 41 I will show you 2 different guitar lines similar to the ones played in the famous Average White Band hit 'Pick Up The Pieces'. This is more of funk based rhythm, but you can hear the influence of traditional soul in it. The first guitar plays a one chord strumming vamp. The second guitar plays a single line guitar riff.
