Watch the Kippered Herring online guitar lesson by Tony Smotherman from 50 Power Pentatonic Licks You MUST Know

Here's a phrase somewhere in the ball park of fusion guitarist Jimmy herring. Notice the intro of this idea with the octave. Octaves can bring out an interesting sound to the intro of your licks because they open the tonality for notes to follow in the phrase. The 2nd part should add some tension and excitement with the repeat note. This lick is in B pentatonic and is a true testament if the simplicity and complexity that can be the pentatonic scale.
