The Pentatonic Collection Vol. I

This is a basic pentatonic lick. It ascends on what I call a root position pentatonic scale ( because the first note is the root note) and bents the fifth up a whole step to the root note, which in this case is "E". String bending is a very important part of playing pentatonic and blues lick, when I bend notes I usually bend the fifth up a whoie step or the third up either a whole or half step (I'll go further in to that topic in a further volume). I usually play this lick at the speed of 260 on the tempo but I suggest if your new at this to start around 100 to 140 and spped it up as you get better.
