OHHH k….. now that we are done with that we can get to the point of the lesson and that is “three note per string pentatonics” if you haven’ t seen this stuff b4 then this is a good way to add to your playing with using scales you’ve played forever ..pentatonix..

you can see here that we took the first 2 boxes of the pentatonic scales….by combining these two shapes you turn the bluesy pentatonic scale into a wide intervallic sounding scale which in turn creates what???? CRAZY PYCHOTIC LICKS!!!!!!..so all you have to do is take the first shape and connect it with the second shape and then the second shape with the third and so on …etc…… and there u have it , a whole new world of licks to explore. Here is an example of how to put the 3 note per string pentatonic to use.
