First Licks – Part 2

by Griff

So hopefully you’ve had a chance to work through the first lick I showed you. If you missed it, it’s here.

This lick is similar in style and difficulty. The whole idea here is to accomplish 2 important tasks:

  1. Practice and get your hands on your guitar for at least 15-20 minutes per day. That’s all it takes, but much less than that and you won’t see the kind of improvement you are probably looking for.
  2. Improve your TAB reading skills. Not that TAB is hard, it’s really easy, but the more “second nature” we can make it, the easier it will be for you to learn more complex things later. If you don’t try to read and learn new things, your TAB reading doesn’t improve.
  3. (I know I said 2.. but I was wrong) Increase your “vocabulary” of things you can “say” on your guitar. These licks aren’t just for practice, they can be put to very good use and I’ll show you that as soon as you get them under your fingers.

So here’s the video for the 2nd lick in this series.
