Guitar Tricks 170: Classic Rock Lead

In this channel episode Neal will show you a fun lick for the beginner to intermediate player. This lick uses some the well-known pentatonic scale with a little string skipping, sliding and bending thrown in to spice it up. And it's moveable to any position.

The tip of the week is the best way to change strings, your guitar will thank you. If you change the strings one at a time it keeps constant tension on your guitar neck.
