Watch the Beam Me Up Scotty online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Eclectic Blues Licks You MUST Know

One of my favorite players for years is Scott Henderson. If you are a fan, this lick may open up some of the sounds he is using a lot. I know I use it all the time! It can also be traced to John Scofield as well (see lick #36).

It is a very cool and comfortable fingering for a symmetrical diminished scale in 6ths. Note that this lick isn't on a blues but it is fairly easy to plug it into one because we are playing on a Dom7 chord here. My advice is to check out Scott and this lick.
