Lick of the Day #8


On paper today’s lick looks simple.

Application is another story.

Today we are working out of a D chord. After a basic frailing strum with a full D chord we add in a little run before going back to a full measure of basic frailing while holding the full D chord.

Lick Ingredents

  • Basic frailing
  • D chord
  • Pull
  • Quarter notes

While the D7 chord is usually chosen for its simplicity and proximity to the G major scale on the fretboard, the full D chord adds a lush and rich quality. Which is best? That is up to you!
