Watch the Steelin’ online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks
Lick #29 “Steelin’ is a really nice pedal steel inspired country lick. Some of my very favorite players play in this style. Albert Lee, James Burton, Brent Mason, Jerry Donahue, Scotty Anderson, Brad Paisley and the legendary Chet Atkins are a few who come to mind. The lick is in Position III of A Major pentatonic and it requires a lot of bending and pedal tones to mimic the sound of a pedal steel. You’re gonna love this one!
