I heard SRV and John Mayer (biggest SRV wannabe ever ) use this technique a lot in their solos for slow blues songs. You can hear it at 1:39 - 1:46, does anyone know what this technique is exactly and what riff he is playing?

I know a guy who achieves that sound by finger picking a chord, sweeping down with one index finger and then using a rapid plucking technique to move back up.
Not the same, but it sounds similar.

its basically sweeping a few notes from the pentatonic scale. look up the tin pan alley tabs and it has that lick in there. but stevie repeats it more in live versions. im pretty sure its just keeping your index on the string and moving the ring finger when sweeping.

Not really sweeping in the traditional sense, it's more lazily raking the pick across the strings.

Besides Hendrix, who is???


Albert King, BB King, The entirety of Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy...i could go on? But i certainly would call SRV the incarnation of those people....probably a "god" right up with them
