In this lesson, we're going to focus on pentatonic licks combined with slides all over the guitar fretboard. Actually, we cover in this lesson, way more techniques such as the string skipping technique, legato technique, hybrid picking, and chromaticism!
Those licks are most powerful when used as connectors. Either for:
- Connecting multiple ideas and gluing them together, or
- Connecting multiple areas of the fretboard.
All of our licks will be played using the Minor pentatonic scale in A. However, you can apply them to any other key you want and you don't have to have the positions of the minor pentatonic scale memorized, as I will be giving you the tablature and standard notation which will help you to follow along.
I would also like to give you this piece of advice. Don't try to memorize the licks as is. These are only tools, and we can mold them and twist them as we like in order to come up with our own variations and own versions of the licks. How many variations can you come up with ;)?
Now create your own variation of the lick!
N.B: You can download the tabs for this lesson (and ALL the other lessons) for FREE by signing up at the bottom of the page.
Very slidey and powerful lick!
If you wish to execute this using the hybrid picking technique, watch the video as I briefly explain how to do this.
