The lick that Gaby teaches in this easy lead guitar lesson is in the key of Bb (B flat) and incorporates the techniques of; double stops, blue notes, hybrid picking, hammer-on’s, pull-off’s and raking. Soule starts off with a riff using double stops as follows; 6th fret of the 3rd and first strings by baring first finger across the first three strings, picked using hybrid picking, Gaby adds in a lick using legato by picking the 8th fret of the 3rd string and then doing a hammer-on to the 9th fret and then pull-off’s to the 8th and then the 6th frets while the note on the first string just rings out. Gaby follows this with an easy lick that uses slides and then finishes it out with the 18th fret of the first string with 2nd finger and simultaneously muting all of the other strings and raking across the strings and then repeating this technique on the 20th fret followed by a whole step bend to finish it off. Guitar TAB’s are available for this lead guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
