Hey, how’s it going guys. My name is John McClennan and I’m bringing you this video with 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 link below which will give you the tab. This is Eric Johnson licks. Thanks for watching.
