EXAMPLE2 licks over A descendinG sequence
This example is based on the sequence of Am7-G-F-Dm7. It starts off with a Hendrix ‘Electric Ladyland’ style sliding blues lick. This is typical of Eric’s nod to Jimi. Then we switch to some Albert King meets Buddy Guy style licks that you’ll find sprinkled throughout the example. It’s important to get the lines to have solid time and flow. Make sure the slides land cleanly on their intended target notes, both the natural ones and the string bends, adding a little vibrato of your own. Use alternate picking (down-up, down-up) throughout, unless otherwise stated.
