The key to doing this is keeping it simple.

Jacques starts off this easy blues guitar lesson by demonstrating the A minor pentatonic scale as follows; 6th string 5th fret and 8th fret with first and 4th fingers, 5th, 4th and 3rd strings 5th and 7th frets with first and 3rd fingers and 2nd and first strings 5th and 8th frets with first and 4th fingers, which he demonstrates ascending and descending. “You don’t want to just play the scale,” says Darville, “You want to use the notes within the scale to make something musical happen.” Jacques continues this easy blues guitar lesson by demonstrating some simple lick ideas using the notes from the A minor pentatonic scale, such as descending the last four notes of the scale repetitively, which he says sounds great, Jacques says, “the key to doing this is keeping it simple”. Jacques explains that doing this sounds great because the chords in the background of the chord progression that you are playing over change the way the notes sound. Jacques continues by explaining that using different phrasing and techniques can make your solos and improvising sound more interesting, that he says that he will cover more on in future lessons.
