This is the sixth lick in the style of Buddy Guy. This, once again, is around our Am
Pentatonic Scale. Let's take a bit of a look at it.
So, we start
off with our third finger bending up the G on the seventh fret ... full tone bend ... and
we've got our double stop down here where we are playing obviously a double stop, which is our
two notes together on the fifth fret, that's our B and E string with our first finger ... playing a
triplet ... one and ah ... repeating that five times ...
Third finger now
goes onto our G string once again, and above it we have our A note third fret of the D string ...
what I tend to do there is just flatten that third finger ... coming back to my D, so it is ...
without the movement ...
First finger down onto
the C note which is on the fifth fret of my G string ... third finger on the A note
which is the seventh fret of the D string ... and back with a bit of vibrato on that final
C note there to end my triplet ...
Then follow it up with
an E note on the seventh fret of my A string. Moving down chromatically, which is one fret to an
E flat ... once again chromatically to my D ... and I grab the octave D, which is
on the G string, on the seventh fret to finish, and once again, a little bit of vibrato on
that final note ...
Let's take a look at
the left and right hand ...
With my right hand
I'm sort of picking all down strokes on the triplets ... and from here on end, I'm playing alternate
Well, that pretty much
takes care of lick number six in the style of Buddy Guy. Play along with a nice little backing track
in the key of A, have a lot of fun, and we'll see you next time.
