Guitar Lick with Octaves in the Style of George Benson - Lead Guitar Lesson


What’s happening, everybody?
This is John McClennan and
I’m here with guitarcontrol.com,
bringing you this video lesson.
I want to show you a great George Benson style
octave lick that utilizes the blues
and is pretty funky. So check it out.

We’re playing this off a D7 chord and
here’s a good voicing or a D9 here.
I’ve got 9th fret, 10th fret, 9th fret,
10th fret. You can even put the thumb in
there if you want. Here’s the lick.
So we’re starting on the 7th fret
making an octave. Remember, an octave
is the same note, just eight tones higher.
You’ve got to learn to deaden all
the other strings. Work on your muting.

I’m playing this with the thumb.
So if I count where my first
finger is, I’m on the 7th fret,
9th fret, 12th fret. And then
here I’m going just typical
blues lick, like… That’s a
real typical sound. Everybody
plays that lick. Stuff like that.
But now I’m harmonizing it
in octaves. Pretty hip.

Then I jump down to the root
and then… Root, which is 12th
fret and then 10th, 11th with my
first finger, 12th fret. Again,
flat 3rd, resolving to the major.
You’re going to have this chord.

So here it is slow. Starting on the
and of one and then all the rest are
eighth notes. Again. Love it.
George Benson, man. Great stuff.
Check it out.
