Watch the Jeff’s Faux Slide online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 Jazz Rock Licks You MUST Know

Eric Clapton is famously quoted as saying "With Jeff, it’s all in the hands." He ain’t kiddin’! This lick is a great introduction to Jeff Beck’s masterful use of the vibrato bar. It’s based around a few E Minor pentatonic blues boxes, although the lick encompasses notes of E Dorian as well. Be careful to ensure that the notes are on pitch when you depress the bar. If done correctly, you’ll get a "faux slide" effect.
