Watch the What You Make of It online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from 50 Progressive Blues Licks You MUST Know

I'm a big fan of taking a few notes and getting the most out of them. This pentatonic lick may seem simple on the surface, but take it slowly so that you can really get the feel of it.

It's in C minor pentatonic but this one is all about phrasing! Notice how you're really only using four notes but the accents fall in places where you might not normally put them. It's a funky little lick.

Take this idea and try to put it into other licks you already know.
