Premium Channel, In depth Guitar lessons

In this lesson we look at 3 pentatonic licks in Am, that are fun to play and the technique can be used to expand your own playing.

Lick number 1 features a symmetrical pattern that moves through all 5 position of the Am pentatonic scale. Here is the lick in notation and tab.

The pattern uses only four notes over a 6 note range. Then it moves to a new position in the pentationic that also has a symmetrical shape. This idea continues down the fretboard until we reach 3rd and 5th fret.

Lick Number 3 begins with a full tone bend on the B string then descends down the scale. Then uses the symmetrical patterns from the previous Lick number 1

In Lick Number 3 we break out of the usual Blues style lick. This lick has a slide followed by two ascending 5th interval. It then slides up into position 4 of the pentatonic scale with a descending and ascending line followed by two more 5th interval parts.
