Next Claude slides down to the 8th fret and does another hammer-on and pull-off to and from the 10th fret and then to the 10th fret of the 2nd string with 3rd finger. Next Johnson goes back to the 8th fret of the first string and then back to the 10th fret of the 2nd string and does another legato lick from the 8th and 10th frets of the 2nd string and finally ending on the 7th fret of the 3rd string with first finger.

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

Legato is Italian for “tied together” and in musical terms means that notes are played smoothly and connected with no interval silencing between notes. Legato is achieved on guitar when playing a sequence of notes using hammer on & pull off techniques.
