Watch the Six Days Six Strings online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Country Guitar 5: Lick Vocabulary

Six Days Six Strings - Lick 16 is a video guitar lesson presented by Jason Loughlin and is sourced from 50 Country Masters Licks You MUST Know.


This lick comes to us from one of the first truck driving, or "truckerbilly," tunes by Dave Dudley. It's a fill from a tune called "Six Days on the Road" released in 1963. It features Jimmy Colvard on the guitar doing all his harmonic pings and pongs and crazy sounds. But the reason I picked this one, is because there is a rhythm in here, by Jimmy and the steel player that Don Rich also ends up playing with the buckaroos. It's a famous rhythmic pattern that gets used in a lot of solos and rhythm guitar parts. It's based out of a simple chord shape. We're incorporating a rake and some hybrid picking.
