In this lesson I want to show you a Jimi Hendrix style lick using the major pentatonic scale. This lick has been used by SRV, and John Mayer as well in such songs as Lenny, and Gravity.
I first heard this lick in the Jimi Hendrix tune “May This Be Love”. It’s a great way to use the Major Pentatonic scale and you can see directly how SRV, and John Mayer were influenced by this Hendrix Lick.
