If you’re bored of playing the same old minor pentatonic ideas why not spice things up by adding a few extra notes to the basic scale? Here’s a lick which demonstrates one way you could do this. For thoroughness I’ve included fingering numbers and picking indications in the music – there are other possibilities but this is what I think works best. The lick can be used over an E or E7 chord in a blues or rock context. You probably don’t want to use it over E minor chord though as it contains a G# at the end.
