“Today I want to show you what I call the B.B. King pocket,” says Darville, “B.B. King is one of those players that plays in Major Pentatonic. Jacques teaches how to do this in the key of G and demonstrates it as follows; go to the first note of the first position of the minor pentatonic scale, 3rd fret of the 2nd string, and move up five half steps, 8th fret, that note is the root note, G. Jacques continues by playing the notes on the 9th fret of the 3rd string with 2nd finger, 8th fret of the 2nd string with first finger and 10th fret of the 2nd string with 3rd finger. “This is the B.B. King pocket,” says Darville. Jacques continues by bending up the note on the 10th fret one whole step and releasing back to the 10th fret and then descending to the 8th fret and then the 9th fret on the 3rd string and then resolving back to the 8th fret on the 2nd string again.
