Ex­am­ple3 Pen­ta­tonic sub­sti­tu­tion idea on a II-V vamp

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

Benson starts out around C mi­nor pen­ta­tonic with a 9th (D) added, in the 3rd bar mov­ing up a mix­ture of D mi­nor pen­ta­tonic and C Do­rian, then com­ing back down a Dm7 ar­peg­gio and end­ing on the 5th (G). These speedy two-notes-per-string ar­peg­gio ideas can be easy to mess up - even one fluffed note will spoil the ef­fect - so again, take time let­ting your fin­gers’ mus­cle mem­ory do its work be­fore pil­ing on speed to un­learned licks!
