Lets get started with the a-minor pentatonic blues scale. This is one of the most common scales for lead guitar soloing. It works naturally in the keys of C-Major and a-minor. For practicing purposes, play the scale ascending and descending repeatedly. Try to pick each note cleanly and also try to keep the same tempo.

As you practice this scale, listen for familiar sounds in the notes; this is the main scale that lead guitar players have used for their solos and guitar licks in thousands of songs. If would be nearly impossible to count how many great songs there are which the licks, fills, and solos were created using the exact notes from this one scale. Even the main riffs which make up the songs themselves can be based on these notes.

This will make you much more versatile as a guitarist. Check out free guitar tabs blues lick 01 to see how you can build a lick based on these exact same notes.
