Watch the On The Chord online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Blues Guitar 5: Lick Vocabulary

On The Chord - Lick 21 is a video guitar lesson presented by Jeff McErlain and is sourced from 50 Blues Guitar Licks You MUST Know.


Let's get a little more complex here. This lick basically outlines a G7 chord so there is no question as to what chord I am playing on. This is called playing "on" the as opposed to "over" the chord. The beauty of this lick is the use of the quick sound of the b3 (Eb) resolving up to the natural 3rd (E). If you are not familiar with the idea of outlining the chord changes, welcome to the new world! Remember every turnaround can also be an intro and vice versa.
