3-Note-Per-String Pentatonics - Exercise 2

To finish, let's try a descending lick that warrants a more linear voicing, with less position-shifting. I very often hear from students, and have experienced myself, the greater difficulty in descending vs. ascending scale patterns, or vice versa, so let's not exclude anything. Based in A minor, focus on the odd 16th note groupings and be sure to stay within the confines of the straight-16th feel. Don't deviate based on what may appear to be odd groupings, interval/position-wise.

Okay, that's it for now! I hope ya'll take something away from this and I hope, once again, that we've unlocked something that you already have the potential to achieve, but haven't exceeded the mental barrier of all that is pentatonic! Pentatonics don't have to be blues/rock!
