Hello, I've been playing the guitar for a year and I was curious if any of you had tips on soloing using the A minor pentatonic scale.
I know it sounds unhelpful, but just experiment.
Barrow licks from other solos. If you like rock/metal use some iron maiden licks. They put good use to trills and the pentatonics.
Learn some solos by artist you'd aspire to be like, then pick out little styles they use and use it to build your own way to solo
I just posted a new free lesson on the 'Secret' Pentatonic Shapes that might help. These patterns flow a little more, sound more musical. But I agree, you have to make music/learn licks.
