Hey, guys. Claude Johnson here from guitarcontrol.com
and what I just played was a blues riff that I wrote
a long time ago. It was a Texas blues, kind of
Stevie Ray Vaughan, but I didn’t realize how close
it was to “Pride and Joy” until I learned
“Pride and Joy” a little bit later.
Stevie Ray actually goes on the bass notes from E
to G sharp, A, B. So he kind of walks up in between.
What I’m doing here, I’m actually not leaving the
chord, I’m just using my pinkie to hit the G bass
notes. So it’s like E — and I’m just plucking on
the G and B strings. This could either be an E chord
or E7 and then back to the E. Do that little figure.
So it’s like C sharp, D. The second time you do it I
slide up and then the third time I do it I go C and
then low E and then this. This is an inverted E7 chord.
I was able to come up with this because I studied the
chord family. So it’s good to know different progressions
on different strings. This is like low E string and then
you skip over the A string and just use D, G, B.
