Guitar Lick #68 – Em – Pentatonic (How To Play Outside)

Today, I’d like to share with you this very simple trick to sound OUTSIDE in a Rock-Fusion context, using the position of the pentatonic scale that we all know.

I think of this lick as a pentatonic of Em, embellished with a few chromaticisms.

Play your favorite pentatonic position; play the same position a semitone higher (or lower) and return to the original position (like a tension / resolution) …

I invite to use this lick as starting points to develop your own ideas!

As usual, tablature appear in the video (that you can pause, slow down, rewind…) and you will find on my channel the “Em Practice Session” playlist to work it at progressive speed (50 to 120 BPM).

Have fun and let me know if it was useful ! ?
