Chromatic blues pentatonic scale guitar lick

This is a chromatic blues pentatonic scale lick in the key of E. It's played over backing track #93 E Smell that Funk - used with permission. You can download a free copy of this guitar and/or bass backing track from

This lick is fairly straight forward and is based around eighth and quarter note phrasing. For beginner and intermediate players I hope it provides a jumping off point to add a little chromatic spice to your 12 bar blues guitar soloing using the pentatonic or blues scales.
