Watch the Comeback Kid online guitar lesson by Jay Williams from 50 Soul Guitar Licks You Must Know

Lick number 7 is an example of how to use arpeggio-like chord ideas. It’s similar to the song ‘Got to make a Comeback’ from Eddie Floyd, which was later covered by Robert Cray. Many of the soul ballads use this technique. You can use the phrase as an intro and repeat it in a chorus part of the song. Together with hammer-ons, pull-offs en slides and the tremolo effect on your amp or stomp box, you'll get that recognizable 60ties soul sound.
