It's B minor pentatonic or B-blues to me. That pattern everybody learns first.

apparently not in my case...
Thank you kindly!


No offense intended.

This lick he is playing is a pretty familiar one. It's has a Chuck Berry feel to it.

It just goes to show you the artist (Billy Joe What's-his-name) is being pretty basic in his technique. It's not anything super complicated with obscure scales. And it sounds good!

We can all learn from this. The minor pentatonic scale can take you a long ways.

Yea. I am starting out on learning scales and this is going to be the first one that I will learn.
Surely he doesn't play any super overly complicated stuff because he is a punk guitarist but it sounds good to my ears and that's what matters for me. I really love bluesy Chuck Berry kind of licks.
