“This is a Slash inspired lick," says Johnson, “I felt myself falling into these kind of licks and realized that’s where I got them from." Claude starts off this easy beginner guitar lesson by performing this easy lick so you can hear what it sounds like. Claude demonstrates how to play the lick as follows; in the key of B, start on the 10th fret of the first string with 4th finger and pick that note twice and then descend to the 7th fret with first finger to the 10th fret of the 2nd string with 4th finger. Next start on the 7th fret of the first string with first finger and pick it twice and then descend to the 10th fret of the 2nd string with 4th finger to the 7th fret with first finger. Next start on the 10th fret of the 2nd string with 4th finger and pick it twice and then descend to the 7th fret with first finger to the 9th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger. Claude continues this pattern across the remainder of the scale and says that this is called a “sequence”. Guitar TAB’s are available for this guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
