Prince has been known to be protective of his material when it comes to Youtube. So even though Ben Eller goes out of his way not to mention it, I’ll let you know that this video lesson features the opening guitar lick from When Doves Cry. It’s a fast distorted lick that will turn heads.
One way to get to know a lick and your fretboard is to try moving the lick around. Robert Renman goes further in depth on this concept and shows you how to work this concept into your practice routine. You can also take a similar concept and apply to it rhythm guitar and different chord shapes around the neck. Check out our Moveable Blues lesson for more on that.
Jody Worrell has a new lesson out on learning a rocking blues lick in the style of ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons. The lick is played of a backing track of G-F in 12/8 time. We’ll use the minor pentatonic scale while still stating the chord changes of the backing track with our note selection.
