“Today I want to show you some licks that will get you out of the pentatonic into a slightly dissonant, almost a be-bop sound,” says Johnson. Claude demonstrates these licks in the key of G. The first lick ends on the blue note and Claude demonstrates it as follows; slide from the 11th fret to the 12th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger. Next, he moves to the 3rd string and does a hammer-on and pull-off from the 10th fret to the 12th and then back to the 10th with first and third fingers and then he does a slide back to the 9th fret and finally ends on the 11th fret of the 4th string. “This sounds more melodic than just simply descending the pentatonic scale,” says Johnson. Next Claude demonstrates how to get back into the pentatonic as follows; 11th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger and slide into the 12th fret to the 10th fret of the 3rd string with first finger and then back to the 12th fret of the 4th string to the 12th fret of the 3rd string and finally end on the 12th fret of the 4th string.
