“This is the best book if you want to play lead guitar and shred on solos. It takes all the guess work out and helps you get to the next level.” -Happy Amazon Customer

 

“Read this book through Kindle Unlimited. This is a great book for those who want to get into lead guitar. Each exercise is set up in nice small chunks which one will find less intimidating.

I recommend that you become familiar with all the positions of the A Minor Pentatonic Scale first as these licks are built around that scale.

Take your time and Enjoy!”

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.
