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

Lick number 32 is of my favourites. In it you can find a whole bunch of soul orientated guitar techniques that nowadays belong to the basic repertoire of many respected guitarists. This 8 bar example uses the sixth interval, parts of barre chords, double stops, hammer-ons, pull-offs and a slide. You can spice it up by using a tremolo effect on your amp or stomp box, to create that ‘old school’ soul sound.
