Watch the Crossroad Devil online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Rock Guitar 9: Advanced Lick Vocabulary
Crossroad Devil - Lick 18 is a video guitar lesson presented by Chris Buono and is sourced from 50 Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know.
Combining the concept of pedal tones with some semi-acrobatic fretboard leaping, this lick pays homage to the jaw-dropping performance at the end of the Ralph Macchio classic, Crossroads. Actually played by the devil himself, Steve Vai, this lick's open hi-E string simultaneously serves as a pedal tone and a chord tone to the various arpeggios contained within. Hope your neck muscles are limber 'cause your head will be whipping back and forth to keep up with your fret hand!
