Joe Bonamassa Easy Guitar Lesson – Playing Pentatonic Bursts
In this lesson, I go over one of Joe Bonamassa’s “go-to” licks. These licks have tough picking, but they are very easy to incorporate into improvisations, and they sound GREAT.
The idea is simple: you just ascend through the pentatonic scale, and pick every note. You can play just a few notes, or go up the entire scale. The idea is that this is a simple way to land on a specific note. Many guitarists and musicians refer to this as “targeting” notes.
The picking can be very difficult if you don’t already have good chops. But, if you can get this down, you will have a powerful go-to lick in your arsenal, just like Joe!
