Guitar Tricks 134: Blues Lick in C

This tasteful, major-flavored lick combines string-skipping, using major and minor in a solo, chord tones, and the 2 note chords from GT #106. It's a lot easier than it may sound, so tune on in for your tasty blues lick of the week from Neal.

The tip of the week is how to get better sustain. First try to keep pressure on the string to keep it ringing. Good intonation will also help. Adjusting your pickups to the optimal height will also help.
