Watch the Twisted Travers online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks
Pat Travers is an under appreciated guitarist who often gets lost in the shuffle of guitar greats. His fiery blues rock playing is some of my favorite in the genre and it’s influenced a lot of other great guitar players. Lick #18 is a Travers styled lick that I learned via Paul Gilbert. Paul was highly influenced by Pat and this lick is evidence of that. It’s also a nice example of how to combine a couple of positions of minor pentatonic using a pentatonic sequence. This sequence in particular purposely flips the phrasing around. Cool!
