In this guitar lesson, I’ll show you how you might start to think of playing filler lead notes in between chords on the guitar. I’m playing 4 basic chords (G, D, Em, C) and play lead licks in-between those chords. I’ll also explain where those licks come from so that you can start to create your own filler licks using this technique

  1. Great teaching method Brian and you do a brilliant job. I realize the Alvarez was a freebie but teaching with a guitar minus the fret markers doesn't make it any easier for the student.

  6. You have great information to share and I appreciate it. It would be easier to follow if you used a guitar with the usual frets (3, 5, 7, 12) marked. Thx.

    Glad you cited Hendrix at the end, as I believe he brought to light all this stuff (Little Wing, etc.)–with a few more sonics :)

  19. brilliant lesson thanks a lot really opened a few different ways of playing for me, and i didnt mind the non fret markers on your guitar its not that difficult to figure out. Thanks man .

  20. Muchas gracias, dude! That's a tasty little lesson for me. I already had several bits and pieces of that which I would use, but this taught me how to knit them together. Neat-o, and I especially like the 'hint-o'-Hendrix' flavor that had coming out of the C chord. Good stuff :)
