LICK5 half of a 12-bar

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Blues -

This time the melodic ideas are de­rived from a com­bi­na­tion of E mi­nor pen­ta­tonic (E G A B D) with an additional 6th (C#) herald­ing the move to­wards A7. Here it turns into the har­mon­i­cally ap­pro­pri­ate ma­jor 3rd, and rather nicely oc­curs just be­fore this tran­si­tion. Make sure your mut­ing tech­nique is up to par as this ex­am­ple will sound rather scrappy if you don’t keep on top of er­rant open strings through­out.
