Claude starts off this easy blues guitar lesson by demonstrating the lick so you can hear what it is supposed to sound like. “I think it is easiest if I teach it going backwards,” says Johnson. Claude demonstrates how to play the lick as follows: 11th fret of the first string with 4th finger to the 8th fret with first finger, 8th fret of the 2nd string with first finger to the 11th fret with 4th finger to the 11th fret of the first string with 4th finger to the 8th fret with first finger, 10th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger and then repeat the first sequence. Next is 8th fret of the 2nd string with first finger the 11th fret with 4th finger, 8th fret of the first string with first finger to the 10th fret with 3rd finger to the 11th fret with 4th finger and then descend all the way back to the 8th fret of the 2nd string. “The note on the 10th fret of the 2nd string is outside of the minor pentatonic scale which gives the lick a modern sound,” says Johnson. And finally Johnson ends the lick by repeating the first sequence again. Claude continues by demonstrating some alternate ways to play the lick using other techniques like tapping to customize the lick to your personal tastes.
