“Here is a lesson on easy ways to get starting play lead blues guitar”, says Johnson, “forget about whole scale patterns, let’s just look at three notes”. Claude demonstrates this concept based out of the minor pentatonic scale in the key of A, which he demonstrates as follows; 5th fret of the 6th string with first finger to the 8th fret with 4th finger to the 5th fret of the 5th string with first finger to the 7th fret with 3rd finger and then repeat that sequence for strings four and three and then 5th fret of the 2nd string with first finger to the 8th fret with 4th finger and then repeat that sequence for the first string. For the simplicity of this lesson, Claude just uses the notes on the 5th fret of the 4th and 3rd strings and the 7th fret of the 4th string. Claude plays these three notes and switches things up by changing up the timing and by using the techniques of bending and vibrato as well as hammer-on’s and pull-off’s. The licks performed by Johnson will be sure to inspire even the seasoned guitarist as well as the novice. For more lessons like this check out GuitarControl.com/secrets.
