Eric Johnson Joe Bonamassa Style Fast Pentatonic Blues Lick and Picking Technique

Published on 25 February 2016
Please help support my lessons by donating here: Facebook: This is just as much of a picking technique as it is a lick. Joe Bonamassa and Eric Johnson incorporate this style of picking quite often. It involves a kind of economy picking as well as alternate picking, but can also be played with hammer ons and pull offs. I get a lot of questions about my sound so here's what I'm using: My amp is an Egnater Renegade head through a Marshall 1960b cabinet. I use a TC Electronics Nova System through the loop for effects. On almost all songs I just use a digital delay, roughly 400ms, but some stuff I use tap tempo to set the delay. I also use a BB preamp on most lead tones and sometimes (rarely) a Boss CS-3 compressor. The reverb is from the amp. My wah is a Dunlop MC404 CAE Dual Inductor, REALLY great pedal! I also use a Polytune tuner which is fantastic. My guitar is a 1975 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe. I have Suhr Aldrich pickups on it. I have them coil split, but for this tune I had them running in full humbucker mode. Folks may be surprised at how much time and effort goes into creating these videos. I do receive some revenue from youtube but it is, shall we say...miniscule? If you're getting something out of the lessons and can afford to contribute, I've setup a Paypal link. If you can't afford it no worries, but if you can, any amount is appreciated and will help me to continue to make the videos. PayPal: Thanks for all the comments, and questions and of course for subscribing. I really appreciate the support. Good luck to everyone with their guitar playing. cheers everyone
