Hey, everybody. This is George Meyers on behalf of
Guitar Control. I do hope that you enjoy this lick
and you will find the transcription on the link
under the video. Lets check it out.
This is a cool sort of Hendrix-y, Stevie Wonder type
riff. Its in the key of E. So were going to start
with E7 sharp 9 chord, the so-called Hendrix chord.
To play this chord, you have the root, which is E on the
7th fret of the A string. Youve got the major 3rd, G
sharp, on the 6th fret of the D string. Youve got the
flat 7 on the 7th fret of D on the G string and the sharp 9,
which is G, which is found on the 8th fret of the B string.
As soon as we kick-off the lick well play the chord
and then we head over to D on the 5th fret of the A
string; then head over to E. Then were going to play
G on the 5th fret of the B string. Then were going to
go back to E on the 7th fret of the A string. And then
were going to play the following line. So were going
to play D on the 5th fret and back to the root, E, on
the 7th fret of the A string.
So the first part; now Im going to head over to the
second part. Lets refresh it, which is a really cool,
bluesy kind of line. Once again, were going to start
off with an E7 sharp 9 chord and were going to go
back to D, then E. Then were going to slide from A
on the 7th fret of the D string to B on the 9th fret.
Its quite a rapid slide. You dont get a chance to
listen to A all that much. Then straight ahead youre
going to play D on the 7th fret of the G string. Then
were going to slide back from B to A on the B string,
then pull-off to G and then go back to E. Then back to
Those little licks are really cool because its really
good practice to teach you one you can fit in between
sort of playing chords and especially if youre playing
in a trio setting and you get a lot of space. You can do
a lot of that. So lets play the lick one more time.
