E SHAPE - MINOR PENTATONIC
SCALE 1 LICKS
Variations
It is very common to use licks you know but
change them a little bit. This is usually called
varying or developing the lick.
Two common ways of varying a lick are –
1. Rhythm Variations. Play the notes in the
same order but change their rhythm. Think
either busy or sparse. You can make notes
longer or shorter; repeat notes; add rests in.
2. Melodic Variations.
(a) Use the same notes but play them in
different orders.
(b) Add extra notes from the scale.
(Moving between the low and high octaves is a
common example of melodic variation).
Of course you can use both variation ideas at
the same time.
