Claude teaches today’s easy blues guitar lick of the day video lesson in the key of B and is playing based in the minor pentatonic scale. Johnson demonstrates how to play the lick as follows; 7th fret of the 3rd string with first finger and do a hammer-on to the 9th fret with 3rd finger and then a pull-off back to the 7th fret and then slide down one half step to the 6th fret and then a half step bend and then a hammer-on to the 9th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger. By sliding down to the 6th fret on the 3rd string you actually move into the Mixolydian mode as a passing tone, a technique that a lot of blues players use. Claude continues by performing several variations on this lick and incorporating it into other blues licks. Guitar TAB’s are available for this cool blues guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
The Pentatonic Scale is a musical scale with five notes per octave. They can be found all over the world and are the main scale used in the Blues genre.
Mixolydian comes from the music theory of the ancient Greeks and was invented in the 7th century B.C. by a poet musician named Sappho.
