A Minor Pentatonic and A Blues Hi -Lo -Hi Sequence Lick on Guitar

A Minor Pentatonic and A Blues Hi -Lo -Hi Sequence Lick on Guitar. This is a very common sequence for the A Minor Pentatonic & A Blues Scale on guitar. Sequences are repetitive pattern licks to develop speed and dexterity for your soloing. As the name implies Hi-Lo Hi ascending from low notes to high notes. It starts on the 2nd note on each 2 note groups. When you reach the highest note the descend is opposite Lo-Hi-Lo from the high notes to the low notes.

The guitar scale diagrams below show the fingers to use when practicing scales on the guitar. Finger/Fret requires using the pinky (Finger 4). This is for Jazz & Classical proper vertical finger form to the frets. The modified finger omits the pinky for rebels who want to break the rules like the Rock & Blues Players. It really has a purpose using the 3rd finger for bending and vibrato because that finger is stronger.

To start play slowly then until your can play fluidly. Gradually increase the speed to find your limits. The toughest one is the last note turnaround to the opposite sequence from ascend to descending order. Then bring in a metronome with a low tempo with triplets. The same thing gradually increase the speed to find your limits. With repetition and time you with start noticing that your soloing abilities will start to sound better. Your picking and accuracy will become more smooth and fluid. I will post more sequence exercises in future posts
