Lead Guitar 101: Flashy Fills From The Five-Note Scale

Lead Guitar 101: Flashy Fills From The Five-Note Scale
by Andy Ellis, performed by Brad Carlton

Publisher: Guitar Player Magazine

Category: Blues, Rock

Description: There are times when nothing sounds better than a hot, flashy lick. It’s easy to assume this means playing a lot of different notes at warp speed, but that’s not always the case. Experienced guitarists know that instead of swooping across the length of the fretboard, they can generate a rush by simply repeating the same notes at a brisk clip. It’s the impact—the sense of spewing sound—that matters more than the specific pitches you’re picking. Some jazzbos call this trickery, but such sleight of hand has been an essential part of country, blues, and especially rock from day one. The pentatonic scale provides the backbone for many flashy licks, so let’s dedicate the next few installments of 101 to exploring this sound.
