Watch the Magic Man online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Solo Factory: Chicago Blues
Magic Man is one of my favorite Magic Sam style licks and it is deceivingly difficult to play. The lick outline an A7 chord which is functioning as our IV chord. What is cool is we can use this as a I7, IV7, or V7 chord lick if we transpose it properly. Try moving this lick through different keys and feels to get it's true potential. The difficult part is the picking and bends are tricky at this tempo.
