Got a Hot Rod Lincoln? Know the song? You could win big with Hagerty
We're giving away a Fender American Telecaster and Hot Rod Deluxe amplifier to one randomly chosen "Hot Rod Lincoln" fan out there. It's easy and there are multiple ways to enter the contest. Want to know more? Read the story by Alex Kienlen then check the link at the bottom. And try not to be TOO uncool to me about my playing, I'm an acoustic guitarist at heart! --- Jack Baruth
At this point, everyone has heard the hot rod lick.
The hot rod lick is a guitar technique, a coordinated left-right hand pattern of ascending then descending single notes. And yeah, that was a pretty antiseptic explanation, so easier to say: It’s the guitar part in the song “Hot Rod Lincoln.”
The song itself has been covered by who-knows-how-many guitar slinger/honky-tonk acts, but it first reached contemporary pop-culture consciousness when it got a modern treatment by Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen on their 1971 album “Lost in the Ozone.”
