“Today I want to show you a little trick that I picked up from listening to Stevie Ray Vaughn,” says Darville. Jacques performs a short demonstration of this cool blues lick as heard in the song, Cold Shot, before explaining how to play it. Next Jacques explains how to play the lick in the key of A as follows; 7th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger and bar first finger across all strings on the 5th fret. Next using the hybrid picking technique, Jacques plays the 4th and first strings simultaneously and then moves the pick to the 3rd string and plays it and the first string together repetitively while alternating between fretting the 5th fret of the 3rd string to the 7th fret and to the 8th fret and back again, changing the sequence and timing to create a melodic lick. Darville says that you can vary up the lick by using hammer-on’s and pull-off’s. Guitar TAB’s are available for this cool blues guitar lesson at BluesGuitar.com.

Double Trouble sold out concert venues around the world and had many Gold Records. Vaughn’s career was cut short when he was killed in a helicopter crash in 1990.
