Watch the Intervalactic Jumps online guitar lesson by Robbie Laws from 30 Penta Sonic Blues Licks You MUST Know
A minor pentatonic box pattern #5.
This lick has a very melodic quality to it. The lines have been fragmented into large intervallic skips. You start out this lick with the root note A on the open A string, followed with a hammer-on to the minor 3rd on the A string 3rd fret. Then, you'll reiterate the same root to the minor 3rd interval an octave above. Next, moving from the minor 3rd of the A string, we slide up to the 5th fret of the A string. You'll jump up a full octave to the B string 3rd fret, then moving up to the 4th fret and up to the 5th fret on the B string. Now to the G string 2nd fret, which is the root note A. Now up to the high E string 3rd fret, to play the dominant 7th G, and tag the root note A at the 5th fret of the high E string.
Lastly, a 5 note dynamic statement that brings it all home. You hit the open G string, then hammer-on to the G string at the 5th fret. That'll give you the dominant 7th and the minor 3rd, and now you're going to roll on up to the B and the E strings both at the 3rd frets which will garner you the 4th and the dominant 7th again. The last note of the lick is the E, which is the 5th in the key of A, played on the B string at the 5th fret.
