Watch the Crystal City online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Country Guitar 5: Lick Vocabulary

Crystal City - Lick 30 is a video guitar lesson presented by Jason Loughlin and is sourced from 50 Country Masters Licks You MUST Know.


This is a James Burton lick. It's his opening lick in Emmylou Harris' cover of Ooh Las Vegas released in 1975. There are a couple cool aspects of this lick. One is that it is James doing his version of a banjo roll. It's a difficult one to play with a flat pick but worth the trouble. James uses a thumb pick which frees up the index finger and makes it a lot easier. Another cool thing about this lick is that when it comes in, it's just a guitar and you're kind of unsure about where beat one is until the band entrance.
