The first thing you really hear on this recording is a dobro, that has been set up to fret. This dobro belonged to Roy Nichols, and I've seen it mentioned a couple of times in articles about him.

Glen Campbell played it on the recording, and on this part of the intro he used a bar in the 7th fret. The roll combination is what I call crosspicking, with a DUU pattern. This combination is played twice, before the electric guitar comes in with the signature lick.

I also covered that in this lesson, but I do want to mention a couple of other things here. I called these bookend licks in the introduction, because it's the intro and the outro of the song. I also want to mention that the prebend licks are an octave apart.

Next I'll show you the trademark Roy Nichols solo, and tell you how to get the tone.
