Watch the Gravity online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks
John Mayer’s solo on his song “Gravity” is a great catchy solo that perfectly fits the song. I love that John plays a really nice Major pentatonic based lick on one string. I’m betting this is something he picked up from listening to a lot of Stevie Ray Vaughan as a kid. In particular the beginning of S.R.V.’s solo on “Lenny.” This lick is entitled “Gravity” and as mentioned previously it features the A Major pentatonic scale played on one string.
