Watch the Dear John online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks
Lick #23 “Dear John” is inspired by John Mayer’s playing on his album Continuum. John is a great modern guitarist and musician who’s playing is deeply influenced by Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King, Hendrix and many others. I really like John’s choice of notes, his time feel and his tone. This lick is also in position I of A Major pentatonic.
Beware of the min 3rd bend here. Brutal!
