Most people think of the Jeff Beck style as being about feel, not chops or technique. Make no mistake about it, his style is about shredding too. He uses basic legato techniques and some finger tapping tempered with old school sensibility to get deceptively quick lines.

We'll center around a G7 arpeggio to get a bluesy sound with some pull-offs at first. Then we'll use that same arpeggio with a fingertapping pattern. Notice in the fingertapping pattern that it's not the typical pattern you might use.
