Last of the 2nd Group Licks

by Griff

This one is a little tougher, but your hands and fingers ought to be in better shape now from all that we’ve done.

I remember reading something from a famous bicycle racer once that basically said “Going as hard as you can always hurts the same. Over time, you go faster, but it never gets any easier.”

That’s also very applicable to guitar playing.It might seem like there’s a lot of crazy things that can be done on guitar, and there are. And you might feel like you’ll never be able to do them, but that’s where you are mistaken. You may not be ready now, but with time and practice, those crazy chords and licks will seem just as hard – no easier or harder – than what you’re doing right now.

So let’s learn one last lick from this group -

Thanks for the post. My partner and i have continually seen that a majority of people are eager to lose weight as they wish to show up slim plus attractive. Nonetheless, they do not generally realize that there are more benefits so that you can losing weight as well. Doctors insist that overweight people are afflicted with a variety of health conditions that can be perfectely attributed to the excess weight. Thankfully that people who are overweight and also suffering from several diseases can help to eliminate the severity of their own illnesses by way of losing weight. You possibly can see a gradual but marked improvement with health while even a bit of a amount of fat loss is obtained.

Dave Tims April 15, 2011 at 3:31 pm

Hey Griff:
I am an old guy (60) whom you have inspired to pick up the guitar after a long time and attempt to learn some lead guitar riffs and some blues guitar. Your lessons are fantastic and much appreciated. I have played accoustic guitar for many years, and know how to finger pick reasonably well, so I do know my way around the basics. I have recently started receiving your lessons and am wondering if I have missed a play along track or tracks to practice with.
Once again, appreciate all you do.


Chris March 29, 2011 at 2:54 am

Hi Griff

I just thought that would email you to say, that your freebee online lessons are brilliant!!! I will buy your course shortly, but I don’t really know which one to buy, as I don’t know what stage I am at.
Also, some friends are saying that I should be learning by music and not by tab.

I would appreciate your thoughts on these points.

Many Thanks

Chris from Bury St Edmunds, England.

Jim March 15, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Brilliant, made extremly easy, please carry on.

Tom February 21, 2011 at 6:18 pm

You are an awesome intructor, BUT, Is there anywhere that can teach me some simple slide licks? ZZ Top would be a good start?!

gary haley December 26, 2010 at 7:42 am

I do enjoy watching and trying to play along with you Mr. Hamlin…Your videos do occupy my mind for periods of time..I have learned some things I didn’t know I knew from them. I am trying to work it out so that I can purchase your DVD’s and I will figure it out..Meanwhile, thanks for the email and the well thought out lessons….Your a hell of a pitch man as well as a excellent twanger.
