Have you ever wondered what it takes to make your guitar solos sing?
If you have you’re in luck because today I’m going to teach you a blues lick that uses a couple of essential articulation techniques such as hammer ons, pull offs and slides.
These articulation techniques are what make your guitar sing, and they also happen to be great ways to easily shift positions on the fretboard.
The reason these articulation techniques work so well is because they smooth out your playing. If you literally pick all the notes you end up with a totally different, more in-your-face type of sound.
If you want to play soulful Blues, you definitely want to go the smoother route which is where the articulation techniques come in.
Also you don’t want to stay stuck in one position all the time, so make sure you use the slides to smoothly connect different patterns.

Hi, my name is Charl Coetzee and playing guitar was never second nature for me. I’ve had to work hard to get to where I’m at today and I’ve learned some incredible things along the way that I’d love to share with you. I’ve never had a proper job and I’ve been playing guitar for a living since I’ve left school. I have a Bmus Hons Degree in music, and I’ve interviewed and learned from the world’s greatest guitar players like Joe Satriani, Buddy Whittington, Joe Bonamassa and loads more.
