Lick #24: Robben’s Poorly (Guitar Lesson LK-024) How to play

This is a Robben Ford stylee lick, lots of fun and sounds awesome but is still pentatonic. TAB is on da web site. The sound is the Tele into a Zen Drive Pedal into an ancient Fender Princeston II very slight delay (mix setting so you can only just hear it) from the MXR Carbon Copy. Taught by Justin Sandercoe. Full support at the justinguitar web site where you will find hundreds of lessons on a wide range of subjects, and all the scales and chords that you will ever need! There is a fantastic forum too to get help, no matter what the problem. And it is all really free, no bull. No try out lessons, no memberships, no free ebook. Just tons of fantastic lessons :) To get help with this lesson (and for further info and tabs), find the Lesson ID in the video title (like ST-667 or whatever) and then look it up on the Lesson Index page of Have fun .

    The thing with Justin, i don’t see his lessons as guitar lessons, they are MUSIC lessons.

  13. starzkey says:

    Justin: On your tone bends, are you muting adjacent strings with your palm, or are the index and middle fingers also typically helping with this task?
    Like these juicy licks, all the best.

    @bitchslapper12 I don’t reckon you know the concept of the lesson. At all.

  21. Eviltoast567 says:

    @Asvarox headphones :D

  22. bitchslapper12 says:

    The impromptu parts you do in the jam track is such rubbish, I can see through what’s yours and what you stole Justin.

  23. bitchslapper12 says:

    @Themanwe You have no thought what a killer tone is, check out Paul Gilbert’s latest album “Fuzz Universe” THAT is a dreamlike tone, even if you don’t want to agree or not.

  24. Themanwe says:

    couldnt learn the lick. too mesmerized by the killer tone of that guitar
