Watch the Jerry’s Thang online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks
Another of my all time favorite guitarists is the legendary Jerry Reed. You may remember Jerry from TV and movie fame but he was an unbelievable guitarist, musician and showman. Lick #42 “Jerry’s Thang” uses some good ol’ fashioned “chicken pickin’” and it combines both A Major and A minor pentatonic. One of the trademarks of all great classic rock, jazz, country and r&b guitarists is the mastery of phrasing between these two scales. Keep that in mind as you play through these licks and continue to develop your own sound.
