Country Guitar Lick – A Lesson on how to End a Song in the Key of G
Here is a fun “Super Quick Lick” you can use to end country songs in the Key of G. There is a you can download the free tab below. I use this country guitar lick all the time. The picking directions may seem counter-intuitive at first. Trust me, you want to use the correct pick-stroke directions I tell you to in the video lesson. The picking strokes are also provided in the free tab below.
The “up-picks” may feel odd at first but there is a reason that this country guitar lick uses them. When counting out the eighth notes, the lick uses down-pick strokes when we say the number and up-pick strokes when we say the “and”. When you say “and” when counting it is called the up-beat. So this country guitar lick uses up-picks when we count the up-beats.
In exercise one, I will show you how to play one octave of the G Major Pentatonic. For exercise two, we will add a passing note. Then in exercise three I will show you how to play the “pretty” version of the country guitar lick. Finally in exercise four, I will show you how to play the country guitar lick with the passing note. It sounds funkier with the passing note.
