Easy Blues Guitar Lick 1 (Chuck Berry Style)

Visit https://www.activemelody.com/lesson/simple-blues-guitar-lick-1-chuck-berry-style/ for the tablature and MP3 jam track for this video. Every few days I’m adding a new guitar lesson video so be sure to check back! This video demonstrates a fairly simple and somewhat standard blues guitar lick that can be played on either an acoustic or electric guitar.

This is really intended for the beginner – intermediate player, although if you’re an advanced player you might find it valuable as well. This video takes advantage of playing a double string solo (very similar to the style that Chuck Berry would use)

As always, if you have questions or comments ask away either here or at http://www.activemelody.com

  1. What effect is being used?

  2. Thank you for teaching with patience so us slow people can learn. 🙂

  3. thank you so much

  4. Really helpful. Half hour of practice and I sound not too bad. Such a buzz when something falls together

  5. Cool riff thanks for the lesson, guitar player of 10 years (mostly alt rock) but recently trying to get into blues guitar.  So many great lessons online like this, blues is definitely one of the most fun genres to play and it sounds so good. thanks for the vid.

  6. how many times you play/strike the 5th fret 1st & 2nd strings? before moving to the 7th fret.

  7. Great video

  8. how do u get that sound?

  9. Hi, Brian. It sounds like if the central part of the lick sounds different when you play it at the begining with the jam track (min 1:31) and when you explain it at 5:27. It's like if you're playing an aditional note… Is that true or just my beginner's hearing?

  10. Great! Great! Great! I love this lesson so much!!!!!!!!

  11. Christopher Breslin

  16. Thank you so much for sharing this Great lesson but how could we find the backing track to this lesson Thank you…

  17. Excellent Video clip! Apologies for chiming in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you thought about – Riddleagan Blossoming Solo Remedy (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great exclusive guide for mastering guitar scales minus the normal expense. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my work colleague after a lifetime of fighting got excellent results with it.

  18. Very amazing lecon for beginner. Thank you Brother :))
