Learning The Guitar - Fingerstyle Licks 1

Picking up a lick for fingerstyle guitar always gives a guitar player a lift. If you hear something that really catches your ear, you want to be able to replicate it and that is what learning the guitar does to us, we always want more!

This series in Learning the Guitar Licks, are little passages that I have picked up over the years from both fellow players and the pros.

Some of them only sound good when played up-to-speed so don't discount them until you can do that. You should also play them up to speed in the Guitar Pro file so you can get an idea of what they sound like, although it is hard to capture the exact sound in a software program - it comes pretty darn close.

Most of these licks are take-offs from Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed and Merle Travis, to me the kings of fingerstyle guitar and they are brought to you for this Learning the Guitar Series.

I have kept each of these lesson licks short and to the point for a reason. It is very easy to get overwhelmed with playing lick and therefore you will not practice them properly. Most of the licks are 2 measures long, with the occasionally longer lick being thrown in for good measure.

Fingerstyle Licks typically take a lot of energy to play properly and they can really show off your guitar abilities. Most guitar players store them away by memorizing them and you can then 'pull them out' as needed.

So study these short passages very carefully, giving special attention to the right and left hand fingering, the ornamentals and timing, because it is all very much of a challenge.

Learning The Guitar - Fingerstyle Licks 1 - How To Play Them

Play these tabs very slowly and follow along with the associated Guitar Pro file in "Practice Mode". This will allow you to start very slowly and then each time through you can increase the speed by a increment that you select in the file.

Keep a close eye on the right hand fingering. This fingering is shown below the tab score as p, i, m, a. (note that in traditional tabulation you may see the thumb indicated as a "t" rather than the "p" in the Guitar Pro version). This term is used interchangeably in tabulation.

All pieces are played in 4/4 time or common time. That is 4 beats per measure.

Learning The Guitar - Fingerstyle Licks 1 - Pay Close Attention to The Tab Notes In At The Bottom of the Score:

Just as a fine fingerstyle teacher would do, I have noted the nuances of the difficult areas of the licks. Sometimes I have to note every note in the tab because there are so many turn-around's, pull-offs, hammer-ons, bends etc.!

Try to play these passages in different keys. This particular lick is played in the key of E major and you will find this a common key in fingerstyle guitar.

The reason for this is the number of open strings that exist in the E major scale and the E Major chords that accompany the scale.

The key of E Major consists of 4 sharps - F#, C#, G# and D#.

Learning The Guitar -Fingerstyle Licks 1 - E Major Chords Consist of the following:

E Major = E Major, A Major and B7th

Relative Key of C#Minor Consist of the Following:

C#minor, F#minor, G#7th
