Hey, guys. Hows it going? This is Gaby Soule
with guitarcontrol.wpmudev.host and today I want to show
you this pentatonic lick in the key of G sharp minor.
This like is entirely played with the G sharp
minor pentatonic scale using the first position.
What Im doing is Im playing groups of five
notes, descending five notes. Im sweeping them.
So I will show you note by note what Im doing.
Im starting on the 1st string and Im making a
pull-off from the 7th to the 4th fret, like this.
Then Im doing an upstroke in the 2nd string in
the 4th fret and another upstroke in the 3rd string
in the 6th fret and Im pulling-off to the 4th fret.
So the first group of five notes goes like this. Okay?
You can play the first note with a downstroke and
the rest of them: downstroke, pull and up, up and
another pull. So that would be the picking pattern.
And, of course, the legato pattern, too.
The same thing, now I repeat that from the 2nd
string to the 4th string, like this. That would
be a pull-off from the 7th fret of the 2nd string
this time to the 4th fret, like this. And now
Im playing the 4th fret of the 3rd string with
an upstroke and in the 6th fret of the 4th string
with another upstroke and this time Im making a
pull-off from the 6th to the 4th fret of the 4th
string. That would be the 2nd group. The first
group; second group.
Now, the third group goes from the 3rd string
to the 5th string and Im doing a pull-off again,
this time from the 6th fret of the 3rd string to
the 4th. That will be with a downstroke and now
Im playing in the 4th string with an upstroke
in the 4th fret and in the 5th string with an
upstroke in the 6th fret as well to the 4th fret.
That is the third group. Down, pull-off, up, up,
The last one goes from the 4th string to the low
E and it starts here in the 6th fret. Im doing
it like this with a downstroke from the 6th fret,
then I pull-off to the 4th fret. Now up in the 4th
fret of the 5th string and up in the 7th fret of
the low E and I pull-off to the 4th fret like that.
So the last group goes like this. Okay?
So all together: the first group; 2nd.
Slowly, all together.
So thats todays lessons lick. I hope you
guys will have a lot of fun playing it. Remember
