Here is another chromatic lick for you, I got this one from Guthrie Govan
(PRWEB) December 04, 2014
GuitarControl.com released a new video guitar lesson from GuitarControl.com instructor and creator Claude Johnson. In this guitar lesson, now available on YouTube.com, Claude Johnson teaches part 2 of a lesson on chromatic licks.
“Here is another chromatic lick for you”, says Johnson, “I got this one from Guthrie Govan”. Claude demonstrates this lick based out of the B minor pentatonic scale with added chromatic elements as follows. 10th fret of the 2nd string with 4th finger and bend up one whole step and then to the 7th fret of the first string with first finger. Next Johnson ascends from the 7th fret to the 8th, 9th and 10th frets with 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers and then descends back down the same notes and then moves to the 2nd string and repeats the same sequence. Claude finally ends with a bluesy phrase on the 3rd string based on the pentatonic notes. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy lead guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
The Chromatic Scale is a scale that uses 12 pitches each of which are one semitone above or below one another. Each semitone is the same size, 100 cents, and is equally spaced from one another.
A Pentatonic Scale is a musical scale with five notes per octave and is very common and found all over the world.
