It's time for another edition of Betcha Can't Play This! In this edition, Entombed A.D. Guitarist Nico Elgstrand gives us a brief but tantalizing glimpse of his string-melting shredding chops.
If you were tasked with playing something in the style of Steve Vai, you might be a little intimidated.
TAB/AUDIO: This series of arpeggiated diminished 7th inversions fuels the fretboard fury of such shredders as Yngwie Malmsteen and Tony MacAlpine.
Sit yourself down to a tasty T-Bone, as in T-Bone Walker that is, and this Chicago blues lick based on his style.
The true blue note in action--in today's lick of the day courtesy of the "Texas Cannonball", Freddie King.
Inspiration comes from all places, and today's lick--borrowed by Stevie Ray Vaughan from a "juke joint" piano run--is a perfect example of that.
Today's lick is all about the T-Bone, and we don't mean steak. Check out Buddy Guy paying homage to T-Bone Walker.
Learn how great blues licks are borrowed, so to speak, with an Albert Collins lick based on a slide lick from Robert Johnson.
