“The fastest way of playing lead is you need to get yourself a backing track”, says Johnson, “I provide tons of them on my blog”. “Step two is know what key you are in”, says Johnson, “three is to start with a basic pentatonic scale in one position”. Claude demonstrates this concept over a backing track in the key of F and uses the minor pentatonic scale starting on the first fret of the 6th string with first finger to 4th fret with 4th finger to the first fret of the 5th string with first finger to the 3rd fret with 3rd finger and repeats that sequence on the 4th and 3rd strings to the first fret of the 2nd string with first finger to the 4th fret with 4th finger and repeat that sequence on the first string. Claude performs an array of licks out of that scale over the backing track so you can sea and hear how it is done. For more information on learning lead guitar go to GuitarControl.com/Lead.
