Watch the Black Fader online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Rock Guitar 5: Lick Vocabulary

Black Fader - Lick 37 is a video guitar lesson presented by Chris Buono and is sourced from 50 Metal Guitar Licks You MUST Know.

It goes without saying the minor pentatonic scale can go a long, long way. So, it's important to spend time getting to know it. While there's oodles of great pent licks out there, it's always smart to walk before you run. Meaning, stock up on the cookie cutter licks like this one that looks back at Kirk Hammett's licks 101 pentatonic run in his "Fade to Black" outro solo from the Ride the Lightning album. This lick is a classic example of simple pentatonic minor milking and can be dropped just about anywhere.
