Playing Licks Between Chord Changes

http://www.creativeguitarstudio.com/ Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: Hey Andrew, I want to add some lead licks or runs between my chord changes to give it more life than just strumming away on chords. I know my scales and triad and 7th arpeggios very well. How can I add more lead to my rhythm playing, or is there any exercises that might help. Thanks and keep up the great work! - Richard, NYC. Thanks for writing in Richard! Playing licks and runs around chord changes; like Hendrix or Stevie Ray, has a lot to do with a couple of important points... Namely being super solid at your rhythm guitar chops and really knowing your chord changes. Next up, is the entire area of knowing your scales, especially the pentatonics. In the video lesson I cover a number of points I think are quite important. Hope this helps you begin getting this technique down! All the best.
