This lick could work over a D or D7, or resolving from an A or A7 to a D. Part of the fun is exploring several different ways we can end the lick – a good way to expand your thinking and vocabulary. As always, feel free to experiment to make the lick your own.
This run could work over a G or G7 chord in a country, Bluegrass, or folk context. The open strings that ring out as you descend create a nice atmosphere and give the run presence. As always, feel free to experiment to make the run your own.
