Watch the More Than One Way Out online guitar lesson by Will Sophie from 50 Southern Rock Licks You MUST Know
This next up-tempo riff features an Allman Brothers like - single string approach and is played in the key of A. Like most Southern-rock riffs, this one is based on a blues lick. Lick 5 uses some pretty fast eighth notes and some open-string-pull-offs. Using these pull-offs makes the lick easier to play, rather than trying to hit every single note, one by one. You'll hear this typical Southern up tempo groove on many recordings, such as: 'One way out', 'You don't love me' and of course the well known instrumental 'Jessica' by The Allman Brothers Band. Another example is 'T for Texas' by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
