Watch the Quittin' Time online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Acoustic Guitar 6: Lick Lexicon

Quittin' Time - Lick #47 is a video guitar lesson presented by Joe Dalton and is sourced from 50 Acoustic Blues Licks You MUST Know.


Quittin' Time is a descending ending lick you might use on an up tempo song. I use double stops often. This allows me to outline the chord, then I move on to the flashy stuff, the hammer-ons and pull-offs. The chromatic passing tones add color to this, already flashy lick. Although I didn't show it here, you may want to try this in another key.
