Watch the Runnin' On Up online guitar lesson by Robbie Laws from 30 Penta Sonic Blues Licks You MUST Know

A minor pentatonic box pattern #1.
You'll be utilizing the entire box pattern here in this great lick. Starting out on the A string, you'll be moving from the 4th fret to the 5th fret using your 2nd finger, then up to the D string with your index finger hitting the 4th fret (which is the 6th note, F#, in the key of A minor). There's a big stretch from the 4th fret to the 7th fret using a 1st to 4th finger combination. Next, you're moving on up to the G string, playing the 5th fret to the 6th fret, with a 1st and 2nd finger combination. These notes are the minor 3rd and the major 3rd, this kind of move is ubiquitous throughout the entire Americana music catalog.

From here we go up to the B string 5th fret with the index finger, then to the 7th fret with your 3rd finger. Now tag the root note A on the high E string 5th fret using your index finger, and a quick shift back down to the B string and back on up to the high E string as you hit the the minor 3rd/major 3rd again. To finish it off, use a little slide with the 4th finger up to the 9th fret and back down to the root note on the 5th fret of the high E string, then back down to the B string 7th fret 3rd finger.
