So you’ve learned a pentatonic scale and you’re ready to start playing your own solos. Unfortunately, it can be difficult at first to make the notes you are playing sound more like a proper lick and less like a scale. In this lesson, Jody Worrell will show you how to mix intervals, change note durations, and use a variety of techniques to create an interesting lick. We’ll pull notes just from the G Major Pentatonic scale and play them over a loop of a G Major chord groove. To learn more, watch our extended lessons on soloing with the Am Pentatonic and G Major Pentatonic scales that are available exclusively as part of our premium membership plan. You can access these lessons and over 500 more during our 7 day free trial.
