Today I want to show you even more chromatic licks
(PRWEB) December 06, 2014
“Today I want to show you even more chromatic licks,” says Johnson. Claude demonstrates a lick based in the first position of the B minor pentatonic scale that incorporates some passing tones using the chromatic scale as follows. First Claude slides into the 9th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger and then moves to the next note of the pentatonic scale on the 7th fret of the 3rd string with first finger and then moves up chromatically to the 8th, 9th and 10th frets with his 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers and then to the 7th fret of the 2nd string with first finger. And finally Johnson ends by going back to the 7th fret of the 3rd string and then ending on the note that the lick started on, 7th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger. Claude continues by performing variations of the lick to emphasize different notes of the scale to give it different flavors.
