    If you've ever wondered what makes a guitar lick or melody sound good, all you have to know is that emphasizing the chord tones of the chords you are playing is the most important element. In this mini-lesson I will go over a great sounding chord tone line that also utilizes some tension and release (also a very important element). Check out the video below, and the tablature directly underneath.
