V-I Cadence Lick #2

by Dan Palladino

The V to I cadence is one of the most common. This lick has some twang to it, and you'll notice the melody outlines the chords nicely.

Notice we have a G to F triad happening over the opening G7 chord? That will work over any dominant chord. Happy practicing!
