EXAMPLE2 licks over A de­scend­inG se­quence

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: BLUES -

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.
