Watch the Let's Start Here online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Solo Factory: Texas Blues

Here’s a basic lick in pattern one of the A minor pentatonic scale. One of the concepts I teach my beginning blues improvising students is to think root. The root (A in this case) is a safe place to begin or end a lick. It just has to sound good! What better way to build confidence in soloing than starting out with a lick you know will sound great right off the bat. Seek out the roots and try to move this (and all forthcoming licks) to all positions of the pentatonic scale. This lick starts with pickup notes into the root note A on the 4th string 7th fret. It stays almost strictly pentatonic until we get to the double stop on bar 3. The double stop riff adds an F# (6th degree of A) and an Eb (b5) to our normal pentatonic box shape. This lick is melodic and not too difficult so, seems like a good place to start!
