Watch the Southern Melodic - 1 online guitar lesson by Will Sophie from 50 Southern Rock Licks You MUST Know
Like many songs related to Country or Southern Rock, the key in which the song is written is often major. Quite often a melody part is doubled by a harmony part. Bands like the Allman Brothers and The Outlaws used this melodic approach a lot. Think of songs like 'Jessica' by the Allmans, which has a very special melodic major feel. The guitar harmonies in fact form the main melody line. Lick 37 is an example of an undivided harmonized melodic line.
