phil hilborne’s one-minute lick

In­ter­val­lic mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic lick

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

This month we have some ‘stretchy’ in­ter­val­lic ideas from D mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic with added 2nd/9th: D-E-F-G-A-C. It’s a re­peat­ing 16th-note se­quence that starts with the notes you would usu­ally play with your first fin­ger in ‘shape 1’ of the scale, con­nected to the notes in that you would play at the be­gin­ning of shape 2. This yields a lot of 4th and 3rd in­ter­val skips, and var­i­ous ‘dou­bled notes’, and is one of the rea­sons Steve Morse and Al­lan Holdsworth love the idea. You can play the en­tire lick us­ing first and fourth fin­gers, but I’ve fin­gered it slightly dif­fer­ently. Ex­per­i­ment un­til you find some­thing that works for you. Take care with the stretches and build up your tech­nique over time. Have fun!
