Watch the Major Johnson online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from 50 Texas Blues Licks You MUST Know
I spoke about the
evolution of blues guitar. When we talk specifically about the evolution of Texas blues players, we
have to include Eric Johnson. Eric has taken the guitar and blues inspired licks to a new level.
He's known for intervalic leaps and a great guitar tone but, much of his playing can be traced to
the blues too.
I've altered some licks that I took from his Grammy Award winning
instrumental Cliffs Of Dover and made some great EJ inspired blues licks. This lick will be in the
key of G major and will use major and minor pentatonic scales.
This first one
has a sweet major sound and can be played over a 12 bar blues.
