Today, I want to show you another cool lead guitar idea.

“Today I want to show you another cool lead guitar idea," says Johnson. Claude demonstrates this easy lead guitar lick that is based out of the pentatonic scale and Mixolydian scale as follows. Starting out, Claude slides to the 7th fret of the 4th string with first finger to the 9th fret of the 2nd string with 3rd finger, “that’s already a cool little melodic jump," says Johnson. Next, Claude goes to the 10th fret of the 2nd string with 4th finger and back to the 9th fret with 3rd finger and does a whole step bend and release to the 7th fret with first finger and then back to the 9th fret. Next, Claude moves to the 9th fret of the 3rd string with 2nd finger and slides down to the 7th fret and then the 6th fret and finally ending with a slide from the 7th fret of the 4th string to the 9th fret with first finger. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy lead guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com. Johnson recommends checking out his course “Killer Guitar Control Secrets” for more lessons like this.

A Pentatonic Scale is a musical scale with five notes per octave and is very common and found all over the world.

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.
