Lick O’ The Week #16 Essential Classics


LollyPop2Raking across the strings preceding a note. 

Raking is not really a lick but it falls into the Essential Classics category. This is because it’s a subtle and valuable technique that’ll give you a way to add dynamics and color to a note. It goes back to the early blues, check out BB King, Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray…

Raking into a note adds an umph, use it to emphasize those special notes! Check out the tab and video!
