Watch the Miller Time online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks
Lick #39 “Miller Time” is a sweet lick that I “borrowed” from the great Nashville guitarist/producer Buddy Miller. I heard Buddy play this lick on an album entitled “Nashville Guitars” and I immediately learned it after 1st listen. Again, there is an inherent Hendrix influence here, even though Buddy played this over a "new country" styled pop song. The lick covers multiple positions of A Major pentatonic and it sounds really great as an intro or ending lick on a ballad. I’ve included a roots rock styled backing track on this one. Enjoy!
