MacLennan demonstrates the lick as follows; first he plays the open 6th string followed by the open first string. Next is the open 6th string and 3rd fret of the first string together and then bend the first string up one whole step and then 2nd fret 3rd string and slide up to the 4th fret and fret 3rd fret of the 2nd string and slide back down to the 2nd fret and do a pull-off to the open string and then fret the 2nd fret and do another pull-off and then move to the 2nd fret of the 4th string and do another pull-off and then back to the 2nd fret to complete the lick. Jon then just repeats the entire sequence numerous times. Guitar TABs are available at BluesGuitar.com.
