Hi this is Dave with OnlineLessonVideos.com and today we’re going to do Bluegrass Guitar Licks Volume one, so let’s get started.
Okay, so we’re going to work over to the licks that are primarily on a G-C and D over those three chords. And what we’re going to do is these licks are going to be kind of chopped up off the licks that you can combine and put together like you'll have two licks for G and two licks for C, two licks for D. Or you can use them separately and use it shorter so you can go from chord to chord.
So let’s start with G. Number one, it’s going to be based off of that Bluegrass G that you learned in the first video. This is going to be a little different it’s going to start on the third fret of the top string, go to the fifth string, go to the fourth. And this time instead of going to the second fret let’s go to the third fret, back open the third fret of the next string back and that will be the first lick. We’ll end it right there and then we’ll add the second one then you can combine it. You can hammer on or pull off some of this. You can pick every note.
You can do pull off, hammer on my first and second fret in the fifth string and then when I hit the third fret on the fourth string—a pull off and then pull off on that third fret on the third string. Hammer on the second fret then again with this. Or I can pick at every note. It’s faster when you pick every note but it probably sounds a little more natural like bluegrass guitar if you hammer on pull off.
Okay, so this is lick number one the G lick. That was with the hammer on’s and the pull-offs.
Now we’re going to check out my right hand. I'm doing a lot of up and down picking. My rule of thumb with picking is typically if it’s—you'll typically alternate back and forth if I'm moving down to the next string I’ll go typically if I'm picking down I’ll pick down to the next string. That’s not always the rule of thumb but that is typically what I will do. Sometimes it’s easier if you just continually alternate. It makes it easy to keep a rhythm. You’ll find your own groove and how you want to do it. So here we go with the metronome.
That’s obviously with the hammer ons and the pull off’s. That will do it picking every note.
