Watch the I Chord: E2 online guitar lesson by Mark Stefani from Jazzed Blues Assembly Lines

In this section we'll begin by looking at a sweet, major blues lick right from the George Benson playbook. It opens with extensive use of the 6th (A) and the popular minor to major 3rd movement. Next up is a major pentatonic pickup into another vintage Benson move, with chromatic blues followed by a pair of flashy slides applied to the C triad. Finally, we see a group of staccato 8ths moving into a great II-V lick involving some string raking in the upper register.
