Watch the Skip That String online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Intervallic leaps can add some spice to your playing as we see in this lick that I stole from Jeff Beck. For fun try playing a scale fingering and skip the string in between. For example, to play a minor pentatonic scale play the notes on the 6th string, skip the 5th string, and continue the scale on the 4th string. Not only is this a great finger exercise, it opens up your ears to sounds and licks that may not be in your vocabulary.
