Watch the Minor Pentatonic Lick online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from Jazz Scales Handbook

Here I'm going to share with you a classic minor pentatonic scale lick that can be used playing over a minor chord as well as in a blues setting. The sound of this lick is similar to what a great guitarist like Kenny Burrell might play. When you listen to his playing, you can hear the influence of the minor pentatonic throughout. Becoming comfortable with this sound is very important and will serve you well as you build your repertoire of ideas.
