Flat Pickin' Lick For A Shape - Demonstration is a video guitar lesson presented by Jason Loughlin and is sourced from 1-2-3 Country.
Our second flat picking lick is over the common A chord shape. This is a classic Doc Watson lick that can be heard on Black Mountain Rag. We start by embellishing the 3rd and 5th by dancing around them with a half step approach to the 3rd and a scale step above the 5th. The second half of the lick walks down the mixolydian scale.
