In this lesson, Bradford teaches you an easy way to play cool lead parts using the A major scale and dotted 8th note delay. This trick can be applied in any key (using the major scale) to most modern worship songs – especially the upbeat more synth driven songs.

For this lick, we are only using the following strings and frets:
How to play the lick
Set your delay to dotted 8th subdivisions. You’ll want to pick in 8th notes – let the delay do the rest. Alternate between the high E and B strings. You’ll keep your finger on the 5th fret of the B string, but alternate between the 5th, 7th, and 4th frets of the high E string.
