Hey, everybody this is George Meyers on behalf of Guitar Control. I do hope that you enjoy this lick and you will find the transcription on the link
under the video. Lets check it out.
This is a cool sort of Hendrix-y, Stevie Wonder type riff. Its in the key of E. So were going to start with E7 sharp 9 chord, the so-called Hendrix chord.
To play this chord, you have the root, which is E on the 7th fret of the A- string. You’ve got the major 3rd, G sharp, on the 6th fret of the D-string. Flat 7 on the 7th fret of D on the G-string and the sharp 9, which is G, which is found on the 8th fret of the B-string.
As soon as we kick-off the lick well play the chord and then we head over to D on the 5th fret of the A-string; then head over to E. Then were going to play G on the 5th fret of the B-string. Then we go back to E on the 7th fret of the A-string and then were going to play the following line. So were going
to play D on the 5th fret and back to the root, E, on the 7th fret of the A string.
Now Im going over to the second part. Lets refresh it, which is a really cool, bluesy kind of line. Once again, were going to start off with an E7 sharp 9 chord and were going to go back to D, then E. Then were going to slide from A on the 7th fret of the D-string to B on the 9th fret. Its quite a rapid slide. You dont get a chance to listen to A all that much. Then straight ahead youre going to play the D on the 7th fret of the G-string. Then
were going to slide back from B to A on the B-string, then pull-off to G and then go back to E. Then back to the riff.
Those little licks are really cool because it teach you to fit in between sort of playing chords and especially if youre playing in a trio setting and you get a lot of space. You can do a lot of that. So lets play the lick one more time.
