Lick #15 “M.S.G.” is in the style legendary Scorpions, U.F.O. and M.S.G guitarist Michael Schenker.
It’s based in Position V of A minor pentatonic and sounds great over an A minor hard rock groove. Again, keep in mind that these licks can be easily transposed to different keys! If you want to play the lick in G minor move it down two frets. If you want it in C minor pentatonic move it up 1 1/2 steps, to position V of C minor pentatonic, etc. You’ll hear this type of lick a lot in Schenker’s playing. Enjoy!
