Watch the Back To One online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Solo Factory: Texas Blues

This lick starts on the note C in the A minor pentatonic. I like when simple licks like this don’t follow the same pattern your fingers are used to. If you’re just starting out, this is a great lick because it will be familiar physically but you’ll achieve some slightly hipper sounds than just running the scale as you might when practicing. Oh, and I got this lick from Jimmie Vaughan during his early years with the Fabulous Thunderbirds so, it has to be cool!
