The introduction and first verse of Freddie King sensation goes like this. There is verse number one sensation is in the key of A. And this main lick that he plays is a series of sliding double stops on the second and third strength. This is our first position, a barre chord. And he starts out this lick which is going to play a bunch of times throughout the song on the seventh fret. I'm using my ring finger here, and my second finger is kind of tucked in there, the two of them together.

Now what I'm doing is sliding twice from the seventh to the eighth frets like this. That's how he starts the song off. And then the third time he does, it's, it's like he plays it slower. So it's the whole it goes like this. So listen to that, listen to the original song, check the tab and check it out that he's gonna go to a couple different double steps between the seventh and the fifth fret, second and third string. So we got this.

He's doing that twice, 7575 and then seven, five on the fourth string. So the whole mix so far. And then he's gonna go to this. He's gonna slide seven to eight, back to the seventh fret, fine. With a little bit of a bend up. I'm using my first finger and just bending up my hair like That, then he's going to go into this lick where he's going to go back and forth between the seventh fret and the fifth fret of the fourth string.

And he's going to get this kind of a quick upstroke. He did this most likely with this first finger. And actually, when he finishes up the lick before that, and he gets ready to go into the four, he's gonna throw one of these in. So let me play everything so far and make sure I haven't confused you. So when he does this, right there when he bends this, he's gonna come in with one of those, just a quick upstroke that he's gonna go and do this. And it's just back and forth on the fourth string with the upstroke.

My first finger is getting the first second and Third strings of the fifth fret. It's like an A minor chord. So let's do everything so far again. Then when the song goes over the four or the D, he's going to go he's going to end up on the fifth fret of the fourth string. And then to wrap up the verse, he's gonna play something like this seventh fret of the fourth string to the fifth fret of the third string and back. And then just back and forth between the seventh and the fifth frets on the third string.

Check the tap for that I'm bending up the seventh fret of the third string, fifth fret of the first string and we got that then it comes To this lick he plays at the end of several verses, he goes like this. What he's doing that's the first half of this lick, break this down into two parts, the first part like that he's using the thumb and the finger pick kind of a rolling motion. With the flat pick, you have to be real precise to get that to sound right. But I'm going from the fifth to the sixth fret, hammer on on the third string. And then the fifth string second, I'm sorry, the fifth fret, second and first string and winding up on the eighth fret of the second string. So that whole that goes like this.

And then he's gonna do the band like this, so the whole thing and he's gonna wind up on the fifth fret of the third string, check the tab for the finger work and all that. So it's bending up on the fifth fret of the third string. or seventh fret of the third string, fifth fret of the third string, seventh fret of the fourth string back there. And then he wraps it up with what I think is a B seventh shaped e seven chord, take your B seven, move it to the seventh fret. You've got an E seven. I've seen some guys play this where they play a ninth chord.

Maybe that's what he's playing. I'm not sure a ninth would work. But I think he's playing that seventh shape. He does that in other songs. So I'm thinking that's what I'm hearing there. Let me go through the first verse.

Freddie King sensation one time slowly It's kind of hard to play this slowly. It's something you got to play quickly. And I think when you hear Freddie King play it the way he plays it may only be possible with a flat pick and using a thumb and the finger pick the kind of a rolling motion. Anyway, you can work on it and it's that's kind of the toughest lick in the song can play that little. He plays it real fast, and that's some of his songs. He plays something just like that plays it a lot slower.

So there is the first verse of Freddie King sensation
