I thought we'll have a look at another lick in the 6th pentatonic
position or the A minor pentatonic position. This one is
particular good for using alternate picking. So we'll do
a little bit of this one and see what it sounds like.
off by putting my first finger flat over the second and
first strings on the fifth fret. What I'm going to do is
hit the second string down-up ... straight followed by the
first string ... do that again ... second string, first
I'm going to place my third finger on the seventh fret....
the fourth finger on the eighth fret ...
... and then descending....
check out what's happening with the right hand in the alternate
picking. We starting off with a down-up stroke on the B
string ..., followed by down-up stroke on the E string ...
Placing the third finger of my left hand ... on the seventh
fret ... and then on the eighth fret with my fourth finger
pretty much the lick. One of the great ways to work with
this is with the metronome. Start off nice and slow. Play
the lick along a nice slow tempo and gradually build up
your tempo over a few days.
luck with it, and I hope you have a lot of fun.
