Watch the Ode to Eric online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Jazz Up Your Blues
This tune was inspired by a simple blues lick that comes from an Eric Clapton tune. It's amazing how one lick or musical line can sound so different over each chord change. It is also important that you are aware why it sounds the way it does by noticing which chord tones of each chord you are accenting. But even with all the theory aside you can have fun experimenting and changing up the lick to "make it your own". Consider the possibilities, get creative and have fun!
