Watch the Bakersfield Bounce online guitar lesson by Bill Kirchen from 30 Hot Rod Guitar Licks You MUST Know

A lick styled after Don Rich's Telecaster work with Buck Owens. Buck hired Don out of high school to play fiddle and sing harmony with him, and taught Don guitar. Don became Buck's right hand man, and an architect of the West Coast country sound.

This is classic twang. Simple, driving licks on the fat strings. Buck and Don routinely tuned their Telecasters down a half step, then Don would drop his 6th string down another whole step. Do the math. That’s subterranean.
