Am Pentatonic Licks by Peter Vogl will teach you how to play over a standard minor blues progression. This free video lesson uses the blues backing track “Am blues”, from the Let’s Jam! Blues and Rock. We’ll start by learning the A Minor Pentatonic Scale in both the first position and the extended version. The most widely used position is called 1st position because the first note of the scale is an A, the tonic of the scale, and it starts on the 6th string. Peter will then teach you three different licks using notes from the scale. We’ll practice each lick along with the backing track so you can hear it in context.
