Watch the Lick Vocabulary 27 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Progressive Blues Power

As demonstrated previously, the extended positions of minor pentatonic and the blues scale encourage greater flexibility in phraseology, so a complete study and understanding of these positions is essential. Notice how, as the licks and phrases progress, I start on a low group of strings and slowly move over to higher groups, one string at a time. In the last examples, I move as freely as I can between string groups and fretboard positions.
