LICK1 speedy pentatonics
Some rapid-fire minor pentatonic licks get the ball rolling this month in the time honoured rock key of E minor (E G A B D). Don’t underestimate the rhythmic element with ideas of this nature, as it’s important to not rush the tempo but keep in control at all times. There’s a noticeable Cream- era Clapton influence to the repetitious ideas here in bars 7 and 8. As always, take time to build up the necessary accuracy and stamina.
