Hey, how’s it going guys.
My name is John McClennan and
I’m bringing you this video
Here’s an Eric Johnson style lick.

One of the things I notice right
away about Eric Johnson is his
use of range on the instrument
and also a lot of pentatonicism,
lines and licks based out of the
pentatonic scale.

Here’s the lick. We’re coming off
of a C minor chord and you’re just
going to start descending down in
pentatonic, like this. So this is
A, 11, 10, 11, 10. A great little
motive there. Then it’s just down
the pentatonic.

Then, get bluesy. So that’s…
Again, changing positions;
7, 8, 6, 8, 5, 8, 5; jumping up.

Here it is slowly. Ending right on
the root, C minor; the note is C
from your C minor chord. So one more
time. Really try and make those 8th
notes even. One-and, two-and, three-and,
four-and; one-and, two-and, three-and,
four-and… And up to speed.

So it’s a tough like, but practice
that one and don’t forget to click

the tab. This is Eric Johnson licks.
