A Screaming Fast Joe Bonamassa Lick in E Minor
This is a Joe Bonamassa inspired lick using the E minor scale.
The first part of the lick involves rapid alternate picking straight up the E minor pentatonic scale. If the picking is too difficult, you can always just use hammer-ons in this section.
At the top of that run, you get into E minor territory, and do a very Bonamassa-sounding pull off pattern, followed by a slide lick. The slide lick is really the focus of the lick. If you can nail just that part, you have an awesome new lick in your arsenal. The trick to the sliding part is to play it perfectly in time. It is easy to get out of time when you combine techniques – hammers, pulls, slides, picking, etc. If you are able to maintain perfect timing in this lick, it will take you a long way.
