Watch the Billy Meets Huey online guitar lesson by Will Sophie from 50 Southern Rock Licks You MUST Know

Now here's another pedal steel lick for you! This one is in the key of G major and again, combined with single notes, this line targets the chords all the way through. Billy Jones & Huey Thomason from the Outlaws used to play a lot of these melodic riffs. Sometimes in a single form, sometimes together in a twin guitar part. The first half of the melody starts high up in the 14th position. The second part is more or less a copy of that, but then played an octave lower in the open G position. In the end of the song you're gonna play some chord inversions of the C major chord, finishing in Em which is the substitute of G major. We'll get to that in the breakdown of course. Lick 24 has pedal steel bending, as well as single string bending. Be careful that you bend correctly, cause sometimes you have to bend a whole note up and even higher to reach the next note. Bad bending can ruin the melody you're playing, because it can clash with the chords underneath.Lick 24 has pedal steel bending, as well as single string bending.
