Watch the Womanly online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 30 Sweet Blues Licks You MUST Know

Left turn here to a reggae influenced version of a Beatles song performed by Jeff Beck. Beck did a fantastic cover of "She's a Woman" on the essential Blow by Blow record. The progression is A7 to D9, and Beck whips out this great A major repeated pentatonic lick that's always stuck with me.

Repeated licks are very important, and I recommend you learn them as much as you possibly can. To an audience, repeated licks can really connect, and they also give you some time to think about what you may want to play next. Repeat lick are also great for building up technique, as you can use a snippet of them in other ideas.

I like this one because it's quirky as much as Jeff Beck's playing can be. I love hearing his sense of humor in his music, to me that's really important. The four must have Jeff Beck records are Blow by Blow, Wired, There and Back, and Guitar Shop.
