(PRWEB) November 20, 2014 -- “I want to give you an Eric Clapton style lick today,” says Johnson. “Lets say I’m in the key of D.” Claude continues by performing the lick which contains a technique that he refers to as “pivoting” and moves across the different positions of the pentatonic scale. Claude uses a variety of techniques, such as bending, slides, hammer-on, pull-offs and vibrato to demonstrate how the pivoting concept works.
