Soloing Pentatonic Between two positions
 
I have been practice between two positions with minor pentatonic and I often get small licks like


D, C, A , A , G, E
Repeat:

And I'm playing them as sixteenth notes so It sounds like a super cool rock lick

but the hitting the A twice on two different strings(not as octave) is really throwing me off because It's one right after the other.

It doesn't sound bad but...I don't know how to interpret it really.


Any thoughts or suggestions?

Just skip the repeated note if you don't like how it sounds.

It doesn't sound bad. What else is there to consider?

Why does that matter at all?

They sound slightly "different" because the different gauge strings have a unique sound... but yes... you're allowed to play the same note twice on different strings....!

If it sounds good, keep it...if it doesnt...then throw it...

I think I understand. You think that because you're playing higher on the neck you should get a higher note but it's the same note instead.

I have no advice on this.

Stop playing it?

you can play the same note and make it sound real cool, like it this song:



it depends on a lot of things IMHO, you should record it so that we'd understand exactly what you mean.

^^ I love that song. It looks so much easier to play now! Just wish I had a clone to play rhythm/lead for me.... LOL. Time to bust out the audacity and slow it down I guess :)

Is it a repetition lick? Like...
Code:
-10p8--5 -----10---8p5 - - - -

Cuz that is 6:4 creating some rhythmic displacement. Iow you're playing a group of 6 notes in straight 16ths.

Can you be more specific?

wolflen 11-15-2012 06:09 PM

you can also view it as triplets...i ran them as dom 7th chords (no 3rd) in the cycle of 4ths/5ths D C A = D7 (no 3rd) / A G E = A7 (no 3rd) up and down the neck on all string sets...

vary the tones in all combinations you will get some nice riffs...

give that a try

play well

No AlanHB thats not what I meant at all

The As I Lay Dying video cleared it up for me. Hell. If As I Lay Dying does it I shouldnt worry about breaking some sort of guitar rule or whatever.


Heres a crap sample I recorded of what I meant though (pentatonic of course)

But yeah The As I Lay Dying video cleared things up thanks everyone.
