Watch the Dickie online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks

Lick #33 “Dickie” is from Southern Rock guitar legend Dickie Betts. You’ll hear Dickie play this lick and variations of it all the time. In fact, these types of sequenced Major pentatonic licks are a trademark of his style. This one is also played by many other guitarists in the genre. I like that Dickie adds in the 4th sometimes with the Major pentatonic scale. Although, I doubt Dickie thinks about that when he plays. This lick is based in Position V of A Major pentatonic.
