Hey, this is George Meyers with Guitar Control, I do hope that you enjoy this lick, 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 youv 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 I have 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.
For the first part 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, 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.
