Watch the Union Strong online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 50 Rockabilly Licks You MUST Know

I picked this lick because it's a much more melodic way to play through a diminished arpeggio. Sometimes just running up and down diminished arpeggios on a V chord sounds a little "metal" to me. By connecting notes of the arpeggio with chromatics it can make it swing a little more and sound less like an exercise.
