Hey, guys. Claude Johnson here and I’m going to give
you another nice little mini lesson on easy ways to
get started playing lead blues guitar.
Forget learning these scales, all the patterns; let’s
just take these three notes. It really comes out of
this pentatonic shape, but we’re just going to focus
on these little bends and the shaking of the note to
get that expression. It’s called vibrato.
You can bend this one. This is 7th fret G string, 5th
fret G string and then 7th fret D string. These three
notes. Especially the 7th fret of the G string you can
bend up, which kind of gives you four notes. So that’s
pretty much playing lead with just the three notes.
You can do a lot with just those three notes. Play some
simple melodies, straight down, straight up or back and
forth, double-up. There are so many combinations you can
do, but just feel it out and just make some progress on
those three notes and then you can go farther.
