Great beginner pentatonic rock licks

Rock music and the pentatonic scale.  The two go together like butter and bread.

Let’s take a look at some licks that will work well in many genres but especially the rock and blues genres.  I’ve attached a pdf for you to download aswell as a video of the licks played fast and slow.

Enjoy!

Pentatonic lick 1 – A minor

This lick uses the A minor pentatonic scale position 1.  Easy, ok!

In a nutshell, we are running down the pentatonic scale from the high E string to the root note on the D string if we solo over an A minor backing track.

Minor Pentatonic lick 2 – A minor

Again, a similar lick except we finish with a bend on the b string

Minor pentatonic lick 3 – E minor

This one might feel like astretch ifyou’ve not done something like it before.  It uses E minor pentatonic position 1 and 2.

I use my pinky finger for that stretch to the 17th fret.
