EXAMPLE1 A mi­nor pen­tA­tonic lick

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: BLUES -

The dis­ci­plines we face here are ac­cu­racy and ar­tic­u­la­tion, es­pe­cially to pro­duce the sex­tu­plet line in bar 5. Our first ex­am­ple is based upon a tough A mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic riff with some root and fifth poLweesr cDhaovr­dids things up a lit­tle. Aim to make the blues licks speak and dig in to the notes to pro­duce the type of power Eric gets when he plays. Make sure you hit the im­por­tant ac­cents in the phrase. Use strict al­ter­nate pick­ing (down up down uEpR)uICn­leGssAoLthEer­wise stated. Tim­ing and feel are all im­por­tant. Eric has a pretty hot tech­nique so you might need a few goes at this.
