In this second segment from Gaby Soule on how to play Layla by Eric Clapton, Gaby teaches the main melody riff that is based in the D minor pentatonic scale. Soule demonstrates the riff as follows; 10th fret of the 2nd string with first finger and then a hammer-on to the 14th fret with 4th finger and then to the 10th fret of the first string with first finger and then a hammer-on to the 14th fret with 4th finger and then a pull-off back to the 10th fret and then back to the 14th fret of the 2nd string and finally ending on the 10th fret of the first string. Gaby continues by demonstrating short melody with bending and then back into the original riff. Guitar TAB’s are available for this lead guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
