Watch the Have You Loved: Ex. 2b online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Kings of Blues & Rock Vol. 8: Freddie King

This excerpt represents the second half of the 12-bar progression, and the majority of these lines are based on C minor pentatonic. On beat two of bar one I create the top part of a C major triad-the E and G notes-by first barring the index finger across the eighth fret of the G and B strings, quickly hammering on from the eighth to the ninth fret on the G string, from Eb to E natural. The lines that follow combine 16th and eighth notes in a rhythmically interesting way, all articulated with a slightly "clipped" attack a la Freddie.
