LESSON #35 - Developing Licks and Solos from Patterns and Scales


Lesson Series by Todd Simpson


Today we are going to look at another way to approach a given scale. We will then take this pattern and apply it to the Minor Scale at the A position. Afterward, we will transpose it to E Minor (12th Fret) and use it as a solo lick with backing track. Here is our first tablature.


Lets first look at a way to run a given scale. (This is not a real scale, just a practice for your pinky)

Now lets apply that to the A minor scale, it would work in any key though.
