Ok, so let's take a look at our Am Pentatonic Lick No 3.

So, we're sliding in with our first finger on the D string fifth fret ... a little bit of vibrato on that note ... and then we go to our third finger on the A string on the seventh fret ... down to our first finger on the A string fifth fret ... fourth finger is going to grab the C note which is on the sixth string eighth fret ...

After playing my little run ... another slide into the seventh fret of my D string grabbing an A note ... again, a little bit of vibrato on that A note.

I then bend with my third finger on the G string a full tone ... come back down onto my first finger on the G string on the fifth fret; seven, five, then seven ... back on to five ... back to seven ... and then back to, I use my second finger on this one, back onto the A note on the seventh fret of the D string ...

Play the whole lick ...

Let's just take a look at the right hand ...

I'm just going to play his lick a few times through and see if I can invite you to play along with me

Remember, whenever you learn a new guitar lick make sure you play it in and mix it with the other licks you already know. Make sure you can in and out from one lick to the other, nice and fluent. Have fun! I'll see you next time.
