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.


Here is the backing track from today's lesson. Download it and see if you can play the Minor pattern in the key of E as a solo with the backing track.
