Watch the Pull-Off Show-Off online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Whenever I play this lick on a gig or clinic, people often ask me what the heck it was, so here it is. This lick is really just an E minor blues scale broken up across the open strings. Why does it work? Well all your open strings are contained in an E minor pentatonic scale, so let's use them. Guitar great Robben Ford plays a lick very similar to this in his version of the Howlin' Wolf classic Spoonful. This one should get you thinking about those open strings.
