This first lesson is a scale that can be used as a lick or an excersise. It is a pentatonic scale in E from an open E to the 17th fret on the first E string. However, it ends on the 12th fret on the bottom E string because it is easy to carry on a normal , one position pentatonic solo from there. You may also come back the way you came up though. Take it/play it/use it how you will!
Above is a modified version of a pentatonic scale in A.
