Hey, how’s it going? My name is John McClennan
and I’m here today with Guitar Control bringing
you this lesson. I hope you guys are having a
great week. I wanted to get into a little bit
of country playing.

I was playing over this tune this week called
“Limehouse Blues” and there’s a recording with
Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed that’s great. But I
was using this chord lick right over the first
chord in the song. This chord is C-7. So if
you’ve got this kind of feel you’re going to
start way up here on the 12th fret, do a little
half-step bend and I’m just thinking about this
sort of C-7 triad here. And then you come down
here to the 10th, 11th. And then now I’m thinking
about playing off this C-7 chord. Again, the
half-step bend so the frets here are going to
be 8, 10, 9, bend up a half step and then come
back down. That’s the first half of the lick.

And then the next phrase goes… Which is just a
very country sounding lick. I’m starting on the
root, which would be the 10th fret: 10, 7, 8,
slide to 9, 8, 10, 8, 7, 10. So it just sort of
goes up and comes back down. Again, I’m outlining
the C-7 chord. So when you’re working on a lick,
whenever you can, try and grab a chord voicing
so that you associate the two of them.

Again, the whole lick is, slowly.

we’ll see you in the next video.

Thank you so much for watching.
