The minor pentatonic scale is one of the most commonly used tools to start creating solos and improvising. The possibilities offered by that scale are almost endless, especially if we take the time to add some chromatic notes within that system.
What is a chromatic scale? According to Wikipedia, "A chromatic scale is a non-diatonic scale consisting entirely of half-step intervals". Mixing that scale with the pentatonic will create some new licks very usable in many situations.
As always, spend time studying the rhythm of each licks and strive for perfection and cleanliness. We'll be using two keys in this lesson. We'll start with a C minor key modulating to a D minor key. Have fun!
