Watch the Stop Your Crying online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Country Guitar 5: Lick Vocabulary
Stop Your Crying - Lick #4 is a video guitar lesson presented by Jason Loughlin and is sourced from 50 Rockabilly Licks You MUST Know.
This is the intro lick to Johnny Burnett's Lonesome Tears in my Eyes, a song that was later covered by the Beatles. When rockabilly was reaching the heights of its popularity America was simultaneously discovering Latin and Caribbean music. You could hear it's influence in the jazz and pop being written at that time. Rockabilly was no exception. It's played in thirds and intermittently palm muted which gives it a steel drum effect.
