“In my previous lesson on this subject we used the minor pentatonic scale to create a lick," says Johnson. "This time let’s use a major scale." Claude demonstrates how to play the major scale in the key of B as follows: 7th fret of the 6th string with 2nd finger to the 9th fret with 4th finger to the 6th fret of the 5th string with first finger to the 7th fret with 2nd finger to the 9th fret with 4th finger to the 6th fret of the 4th string with first finger to the 8th fret with 3rd finger to the 9th fret with 4th finger and then repeat this sequence on the 3rd string to the 7th fret of the 2nd string with 2nd finger to the 9th fret with 4th finger to the 6th fret of the first string with first finger to the 7th fret with 2nd finger and finally the 9th fret with 4t finger. Claude says to start off by simply playing the scale up and down and then vary it up by doubling up notes and skipping notes and incorporating techniques such as hammer-on and pull-offs. Claude says it is important to have your licks resolve by having them end on the root note of the key you are playing in.
