Lesson #117, Cumberland Gap V
In the beginning of this video I am switching between the X and Y positions (see lessons on Vamping), to create different tones within the same licks. Try experimenting with the X and Y positions to hear the different tones that you like hearing.
The variation in this video is coming straight from the use of harmonization with the pentatonic scale. The harmonization I used in this video is from two notes within the modes on the first and second strings. The only thing I did to come up with this descending line was to link the harmonizations with the forward/backward roll. If you look at measures 7,8,and 9 in the up the neck tab, you will see for yourself that it is coming directly from the pentatonic scale and its modes.
