L297 EMaj9 chord, lick and false harmonics

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites First an Emaj9 voicing i shamelessly stole from a Bobby Vega youtube video, followed by a B major pentatonic lick (fits EMaj7) - The B Major pentatonic scale consists of the notes B C# D# F# G# which translates to the 5th, 6th, Maj7th, 9th and 3rd step in the E major scale, a nice jazzy/lyric note selection. So when playing over any Major7 chord (EMaj7 in this example), try and play a major pentatonic scale starting on the 5th step (B major pentatonic scale in this example). Lastly im trying to play the chord with "false" harmonics, by using my left hand thumb to lightly touch the string an octave above the last fretted notes and pich the harmonic with a finger (phew, thats hard to put in words, better just look how its done)
