Psychedelic '60s - Beginnings

Inspired by Chuck Berry, I used this lick in a song called "Honky Tonk Bar" to set up a lively groove.  Based in the key of G, I set up each measure with a hammer on the 3rd string followed by playing a 5th interval barred on the 1st and 2nd strings.  Notice how the second measure uses a minor 3rd interval which accents a possible chord change in the rhythm section.  The end of the lick ends with a run in the G minor pentatonic scale.
