Watch the Hittin’ The Target online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Solo Factory: Texas Blues

Blues players seem to always resolve these V chord licks to the root of the V chord. This lick is no different. What I did here was really outline the E7 chord in the area of pentatonic 1. The color notes we added before line up perfectly with the notes in the E7 chord that we’re anticipating. We wrap the lick up by grazing by the major 3rd C# again and then finish by telegraphing the E note in the final bar of the turnaround. This is a very common idea so make good use of it. After all, our guitar heroes have!
