These licks are most often found in Country and Rockabilly, however you'll also find them in many other styles of music as well. I demonstrate four different licks in the video lesson with on-screen TAB included.

Have you ever wondered about those unique colorful guitar licks that make the guitar sound like it's a, "Banjo." They're prominently featured in Country and Rockabilly music however variations on these lines can be found in all kinds of other musical pieces & styles too.
Now, obviously these guitar licks sound really cool when you get them up to speed. So, they're certainly worth learning. And, their unique sound comes from the way they can make a standard electric guitar come across in a similar kind of way as a banjo, or a steel guitar might sound.
When first trying them, it might take awhile before you're really going to nail-down their sound. But, after you start getting them up to speed, they'll take on a whole new life all of their own.
In the video I zoom-in on the guitar fretboard, and demonstrate some examples I put together for the video for you to practice at home. Enjoy!
