Ok, so here we go with pentatonic lick no 6, in our series of pentatonic licks. This one is
pretty much a semiquaver style lick coming off our own minor pentatonic, so that means
we're going to give our alternate picking a little bit of a work out. Also starting on
the off beat with this lick. So, I'll take you through.
So, starting off here on the 5th fret on the E string ... two quick notes .. going to my
A string on the 6th fret .. and returning back to my E string ... moving up chromatically,
I'm now on the 7th fret with my third finger on the A string ... back to my A note again
with my first finger ... Now, again chromatically moving up 8th fret with my forth finger ...
always returning back to my A note ...
I now drop down to my forth string fifth fret, first finger, third finger, ...
play a C note, first finger on the G ... and finish off with my third finger on the
G string seventh fret.
It's important to know that I start the lick on the off beat. I'm playing of course semiquavers,
so it's like one-e-and-e, two-e-and-e, three-e-and-e, four-e-and-e ... it's my semiquaver count.
Instead of coming in on the 'one' I'm coming in on the second half of the one count, so it's
one-e-AND-e, two-e-and-e, three-e-and-e, four-e-and-e, one-e-AND-e ... once again on that one ...
Taking a look at the picking hand, you'll note that it is pretty much all alternate picking ...
So let's get backing track happening and let's trade off that lick together ...
Ok, I hope you had a lot of fun playing that. Have a lot of success with it, make sure you keep
changing those licks and changing the phrasing on the licks. Have a lot of fun with it.
Until next time that was pentatonic lick no 6. See you soon!
