Gibson Guitar: Lessons

The Classic ‘Green Onions’ Lick (Mon, 14 Apr 2014)
The guitar lick in the classic song “Green Onions” is a very oft-imitated and quoted riff that was originally played by Steve Cropper of Booker T. and the MGs. It is truly one of the real “foundational” licks of rock guitar, and has been the kick-off riff in countless jams ever since it was first heard. It’s also like a backwards version of the “I’m a Man” Muddy Waters lick, which is another archetypical riff that is used over and over again.

How To Solo Longer In Voodoo Child ()
How To Solo Longer In Voodoo Child Description I’ve always had trouble soloing along with Voodoo Child (slight return) without not so slightly returning to the same thing I played already. Most of the soloing happens over the I chord, and it can get awfully repetitive. So how did Stevie Ray Vaughan manage to pull off 10 or 12 minute versions of this song, and still sound good? For one, he was more creative than I’ll ever be. But there is a practical way to extend your soloing for longer using 4 bar “themed” soloing breaks. That’s what I’ll teach you in this lesson.
