Licks For Rock Soloing Lick 3
This ascending A minor pentatonic lick employs hammer-ons and pull-offs and a whole step bend that resolves on the root of the scale. Begin by playing the seventh fret on the fourth string. Move to the fifth fret on the third string with your first finger, hammer-on to the seventh fret with your third finger.
The next parts of the lick is a hammer-pull from the fifth to the eighth fret, and then back to the fifth fret all on the second string. Beat four is the whole step bend. The key to getting this bend is to support the finger you choose to use for the bend with your other fingers to give you the strength to get the note to the right pitch. I find it easier to do this bend with the third finger. It is also good to be able to make this bend with your fourth finger as well. The lick ends on the fifth fret of the first string with your first finger.
