PLAY­ING TIPS

EX­AM­PLE 9: TOM BUKO­VAC While the fol­low­ing ex­am­ple is not tech­ni­cally a ‘lick’, I wanted to in­clude it to show you what a fan­tas­tic chordal player Tom is. Tom won Mu­sic Row mag­a­zine’s Ses­sion Gui­tarist Of The Year for five con­sec­u­tive years. I rec­om­mend us­ing flesh only (no pick/thumbpick) here as it will give you a softer sound and a more tac­tile ap­proach.

EX­AM­PLE 10: GUTHRIE TRAPP Guthrie cut his teeth in The Don Kelly Band, as did Redd Volka­ert, JD Simo and Johnny Hi­land. But this rip-roar­ing hy­brid picked open-string run is rem­i­nis­cent of Danny Gatton. Play the sec­ond voice on the stave with the pick; the chal­lenge, be­sides the speed, is the widen­ing gap be­tween pick and fin­gers as the pick moves onto the lower strings.
