Watch the Blue Rider online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Country Guitar 5: Lick Vocabulary

Blue Rider - Lick 46 is a video guitar lesson presented by Ray Nijenhuis and is sourced from 50 Western Swing Licks You MUST Know.


Blue Rider is a medium slow one. It's an example of how to combine different techniques to make arpeggios sound more colorful. It incorporates hammer-ons, pull-offs, bends and slides to embellish the notes which will make it sound more like a melody than a bunch of chord notes grouped together. In the second half of this lick we will see how a bluesy minor pentatonic based lick fits the I IV I chord change nicely. Feel free to experiment with this last part and play half step bends and/or slides as per the video.
