LICK2 de­liv­ery and note se­lec­tion

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Blues -

Again, the notes here are noth­ing un­usual, fea­tur­ing B mi­nor pen­ta­tonic against a static B mi­nor back­ing. The nu­mer­ous bends, re­leases, re-bends and such­like will take time to de­velop ac­cu­racy and con­vic­tion. In par­tic­u­lar, the first fin­ger bend in bar 2 might take some pa­tience and per­sis­tence to de­velop the req­ui­site strength and stamina. This is one of those in­stances when a slighter higher ac­tion or the re­duced scale length of a Gibson makes things eas­ier and in­ter­est­ingly, when I first spotted Jonny play­ing this kind of idea he was play­ing a Les Paul, rather than his usual thin­line Tele.
