T-Bone is perhaps the most influential of all our Blues Legacy players mainly due to the fact that he invented Blues lead playing on the electric guitar!
Walker’s popularization of the minor pentatonic scale (which ironically is now considered by some to be somewhat basic) was revolutionary during his day.

Let’s take a look at what note choices T-Bone has in his licks.
Lick 1 – G minor pentatonic, Em shape
The first lick is T-bone classic, as seen in Papa Ain’t Salty, simply adding a bend towards the maj 3rd.

Lick 2 demonstrate how by adding notes far away from your favorite lick, you can add excitement.
B.B. King learned a lot from T-bone when it came to this trick.
