Watch the Earth, Wind, Groove online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks
Earth, Wind & Fire is one of the greatest r&b/soul/funk bands of the 1970’s. Their music is timeless and they still have a huge following of supporters. Lick #31 “Earth, Wind, Groove” is a tribute to E.W.F. guitarist Al McKay. This lick is based in Position IV of A Major pentatonic. Check out the intro to Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Sing A Song” to hear what inspired this lick. Like all other groove based licks, try to lay back in the pocket on this one and dig deep into the groove.
