Claude teaches today’s easy blues guitar lick of the day video lesson in the key of C# (C sharp), and is playing based in the minor pentatonic scale. Johnson demonstrates how to play the lick as follows; 11th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger and bend it up a whole step, and then release and do a pull-off to the 9th fret with first finger and do a hammer-on to the 11th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger. Next, Claude goes back to the 9th fret of the 3rd string, and then descends back to the 11th fret of the 4th string and does a pull-off to the 9th fret and a hammer-on to the 11th fret of the 5th string with 3rd finger, and then back to the 9th fret of the 4th string and another hammer-on to the 11th fret and finally back to the 11th fret of the 5th string, ending on the 11th fret of the 4th string. Johnson continues this easy beginner blues guitar lesson by demonstrating some variations on the lick and playing it in different keys.
