Hot Licks in A Minor Pentatonic (Pattern 1)

This lesson is for intermediate guitar players that have learned how to read tablature, know alternate picking, and are at least fairly comfortable with playing in the pentatonic scale.

This is a composition of a few little runs you can do and they are ALL in position 1 of the minor pentatonic scale in A.  I have used this to help improve many students in the area of using scales and creating melody.
