Watch the Buddy Guy Hammer On online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Acoustic Guitar 6: Lick Lexicon

Buddy Guy Hammer On - A Lick 4 is a video guitar lesson presented by David Hamburger and is sourced from Fingerstyle Blues Factory.


We start with the 9th-fret "Robert Johnson chord" in measure one, then get into some blues-scale hammerons and pulloffs in measure two. If you have any trouble executing the hammeron-pulloff move starting on beat 2 of measure 2, try doing it first without playing the high string. This lick and the one to follow are basically variations on one another; once you have them both down, try mixing and matching which chord you open with and which lick you answer with.
