Hey, everybody. This is George Meyers on behalf
of Guitar Control. I do hope that you enjoy this
lick and you will find the transcription on the
link under the video. Lets check it out.
This is quite a funky little riff in the key of A
and its basically based on a counter-melody. What
I mean by that is there is a melody going all the
way through and the bass notes change. So youve
got this melody. And then the bass notes change.
So we start in A on the 5th fret, then were
going to play A on the 7th fret of the B string,
then G and A again. So all together.
Were going to play C on the 5th fret of
the G string and then were going to go
back to A on the 7th fret of the B string
and then play G. So all together.
In terms of picking, I cant say that Im really
thinking about it. I think the important thing is
to have your muting technique sort of nailed so
that you can just kind of feel it thing. When it
comes to groove-based music Ive found if you get
too clinical about it, it kind of looses the point.
So as long as you feel the groove and youre
confident about your muting, it should work.
So the first part is
What youre going to do
is youre going to go to G on the E string and
then youre going to play the exact same counter-melody.
Then youre going to go to F sharp. All together
Now theres a slight alteration. So then were
going to go to F and then were going to head to
A on the B string, then G on the 5th fret of the B
string, then back to A and thats as far as were
going to go this time. So were going to play the
entire counter-melody and were going to conclude
the lick by playing the low E and then play G and A.
So all together, slowly.
I hope you really enjoyed this and feel free to stay tuned for more licks. Cheers.
