Watch the Cross Your T's online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Blues Guitar 5: Lick Lexicon

Cross Your T's - IV Chord: Lick #9 is a video guitar lesson presented by Corey Congilio and is sourced from Solo Factory: Texas Blues.


T-Bone Walker is no joke. He had a lot to say and I got this idea from him. This IV chord lick does the trick when it comes to saying something different and unexpected. We're adding in an F# in the pickup bar which again, gives us that 6th sound. We're also adding the B note for the 9th sound that he loved. These sounds give us a jazzy flavor or color. I love the string skipping too. Get this one down and you'll be using it for sure!
