How to Play This Blues Lick on Lead Guitar in the Style of Eric Clapton

Blues Guitar Lick in the Style of Eric Clapton – Lead Guitar Lesson on Blues Licks

Hey, how’s it going this is Claude Johnson with Guitar Control, I want to give you an Eric Clapton style lick today. It’s in the key of D. It’s kind of like this.

Basically you pivot. Notice how I’m pivoting off that one note? Then I slide; pivoting again. You’re just pivoting off of different notes. I talk a lot about this in Supercharged Soloing Made Simple, but I just want you to be aware of the basic concept.
