What’s that lick he plays in the holes starting at 3:22? It sounds like a closed lick.

That’s a video to study, right there. Tons of great backup and transition licks to incorporate into other songs. Thanks!

Hi Mats

The Six White Horses lick ( is derived from the tune Six White Horses where Earl Scruggs is credited with inventing this great backup lick) It been copied and modified and therefore has a ton of variations. So yes “Walking the Dog lick” is a variation on the Six White Horses Lick, Ben just happen to come up with that name to give the lick a handle and makes it easy for us to identify it.

I believe it’s also the lick Ben plays over and over in the intro to Jazzy Joy To the World.
