How’s it going, guys? This is John McClennan
here with guitarcontrol.wpmudev.host, excited to bring
you this lesson. In our previous lesson we
discussed something called the hexatonic scale
and I showed you how to take a major scale,
you remove the fourth step and you get G
major hexatonic. And so now what I’m going
to show you is a lick that utilizes that sound.
Again, I’m not necessarily thinking of it as a scale,
but more of a sound that I can dial-up. Here’s some
vocabulary, some licks for you to practice that are
going to drive the idea home. Again, click the link
below for the tab and let’s jump in here.
So we start on the 2nd fret — this is coming off a G.
So we’re starting right on the major 7th and
we’re going to play 2, 3, 2, 5, 3. And then 4, 2, 5
and then I’m going to slide into the 7th of the chord,
but I’m starting on the 3rd fret, sliding to the 4th;
and then 5th fret, 2nd fret. So here it is again slowly.
And then one and, two and, so a little rhythmic variation,
mainly 8th notes though. Or you could just pluck it
without the pull-off there. Then play your G major 7 chord.
Again, 3, 4, 4, 3 for that chord. Sometimes I’ll even
play this chord and get it cross-bar here,
diagonally and grab that note on the 2nd fret.
Again, I’m attaching the chord to the lick.
So if I’m vamping this chord…
