Watch the Arpping Away online guitar lesson by Tony Smotherman from 50 Power Pentatonic Licks You MUST Know
Here's something cool to try. Take your 3 notes per string pentatonic and move up your shape in octaves, you can get awaked sounding lick by ascending and descending. Almost arpeggio like! Try hammering them on for a fluid liquidly legato sound. If you want to be more aggressive try alternate picking every single note. or even better, how about sweep picking ! Contrary to popular belief you can sweep scales just like you can sweep arpeggios when you cross a string just use another down stroke, so that's "down, up, down, down " don't worry, I didn't forget we're string skipping, no one will actually hear the skipped string in this lick at a faster tempo.
