Watch the The One online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Why do open string licks sound so awesome? The secret lies within the otherwise impossible interval sequences you can achieve by infusing open strings into your licks. To best illustrate that sentiment, this lick kicks into high gear in the same way Eddie did while laying down stellar lick after stellar lick during the intro to "I'm the One". Just wait! You'll bouncing off open strings like a kid with a pogo stick after a can Red Bull.
