Claude teaches today’s easy blues guitar lick of the day video lesson in the key of E and is playing based in the minor pentatonic scale. Claude says that the lick is based out of the first position of the minor pentatonic scale that usually starts on the 12th fret of the 6th string, but he simply uses the same sequence but starts on the 7th fret of the 5th string. Johnson demonstrates how to play the lick as follows; 7th fret of the 4th string with first finger as a up stroke to the 10th fret of the 5th string with 4th finger to the 7th fret with first finger to the 10th fret of the 6th string with 4th finger. Next sequence is 10th fret of the 5th string with 4th finger, which is cross picked from the 6th string, to the 7th fret with first finger and then repeat that same sequence on the 6th string, all of this is played using alternate picking. Finally Claude ends it with 10th fret of the 5th string with 4th finger to the 7th fret with first finger. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy blues guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
