Speedy's Blues - Lick 30 is a video guitar lesson presented by Jason Loughlin and is sourced from 30 Country Jazz Licks You MUST Know.


Speedy Haworth was best known as the house guitarist on the Ozark Jubilee, featured doing instrumentals on his Stratocaster. He's also known for backing up Porter Wagoner when Porter was just starting out. Later in Speedy's career, he turned to singing gospel music. This lick from "Skiddly Boo" shows off some of his creative use of triads and inversions over an unorthodox blues progression.
