Watch the Outbound Dog online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Country Guitar 5: Lick Vocabulary

Outbound Dog - Lick 17 is a video guitar lesson presented by Bill Kirchen and is sourced from 30 Hot Rod Guitar Licks You MUST Know.


This lick is hybrid picked with a "dead-thumb" bass part. Although I play it with a pick, not my thumb, it's a technique associated with finger-picked country blues. Damp the low E with the meat of your palm, and hit the open low E like a drone for the majority of the song. I play this on "Home in My Hand", the flip side of "Hot Rod Lincoln", Paramount Records, 1972.
