G licks for the Bluegrass Guitarist.

Below are some tabs for some nice G runs that sound great in bluegrass music. I will post a video of me playing them, even without that the tabledit software makes it capable to listen to the Midi. I have them split into four exercises I discuss in more detail below.

Clarence White influenced

Ex 1. I took this straight from Clarence White, it is also the beginning of Huckleberry Hornpipe. There is a nice pull-off, this run can be played with more left hand techniques like hammering on. Try to mix it up some to give it your own voice

Ex 2. Very similar to example one with a slight variation and a 2nd measure. After a quarter note pause you need to do some string skipping (going from an open G string to the A string fretted at Bb) so start this one at a slow tempo.

Ex 3. A “floatie” run having open strings vibrating against fretted notes. I found this particular riff myself, it sounds best over a G7. Left hand must stay out of the way of your high e string.

Ex 4. The third position is a fun one to play with in the key of G. 1st finger on the 3rd fret B string (D note) 3rd finger on the D string 5th fret (G note) with the open G string to drone under your 3rd finger. Experiment with it and trust your ear. Again, keep fingers from dampening open strings to give a full harp-like sound.
