I originally learned this lick in open position (in the key of C) as a country/bluegrass sort of thing, but I've learned to play it with no open strings in a few different places to make it work over any chord, any key, any time. Pay attention to the way it uses chord tones and passing notes. This is a great template for creating your own licks.

If you've enjoyed the last few months of Lick of the Week, please see my other guitar and mandolin lessons on this blog. I am also available for private guitar and mandolin lessons in NYC or via Skype.
