Guitar Lick Using Inverted Thirds

Okay – QUICK – before anybody’s eyes glaze over… an inverted third is simply another way for saying “this sounds awesome!” in musical geek-speak.

I know that sometimes throwing around lingo like this shuts some people down, but it is my firm belief that understanding what we play makes us better players. But never fear, we’re not going into the theory angle today, we’re just learning a riff. In the actual course, I do explain this stuff in much greater detail, and you’ll learn how to use it in context too, but for today, I just wanted to give you a sample riff pulled straight out of the Dynamic Rhythm Guitar course.

  1. I love your videos of the guitar licks. I’ve learned a lot from you over the past several months. have been playing since I was 14yrs and have learned more in the last months than in most of my life. I have more understanding of what I play today. I just turned 60yrs old so old dogs can learn new and old tricks. Thanks Jonathan….

    Love the blue shirt!
