Build single guitar part that plays lead licks in a call and response to the vocalist. I this lesson, I take the song ‘Before You Accuse Me’ and show in detail how I would build a single guitar part that plays rhythm guitar over the vocal lines, and lead licks in the spaces. Although the lesson is inspired by Eric Clapton’s Before You Accuse Me, the licks are all my own.
1. Intro and explanation
2. Example of 3 verses
3. Teaching all the licks
4. Tips tricks and excursuses to practice
The lesson teaches specific licks to get you started, but once you get this technique down, you should be able to improvise your own licks and keep that rhythm driving.
