Let's take a look at Pentatonic Lick Number 5. This is a, very much a chromatic
sounding kind of lick and is predominantly played at the bottom end of the
pentatonic scale. So, let me take you through those notes right now.
So, once again, we're ... using our A minor pentatonic scale which I'm sure
by now you're familiar with. Starting with our third finger up here on an E
note on the seventh fret of the A string ... moving down chromatically
one fret ... to our sixth fret ... then dropping down to our D string
underneath on the seventh fret ... moving back into, again, the sixth fret on our
A string ... down to the fifth fret of our A string ... now
moving to the sixth fret of our D string ... back to the fifth fret of our
A string ...
Now, from there I'm going to add the forth finger on the E string on the
eighth fret ... and finishing up with ... my last three notes which are going to be
5, 7, 5 ...
Ok, we put the backing track on, and we trade back and forward with Pentatonic Lick No 5.
... now you
... now you
Now, with the track we've just played, I'm playing through that it fairly quickly. If you can't
maintain that tempo, that's ok. You can break the lick up. As I've said before, it's
up to you the way that you phrase the lick ... one idea ... any way you like.
Have fun with it and I'll see you next time.
