Rock and Roll Guitar Lick in C

A classic rock and roll guitar lick that draws a lot on early Rockabilly playing. The guitar lick is based around the C Minor Pentatonic scale but draws on passing tones and notes from the Major Pentatonic Scale as well. As you can see and hear from the tab and video the triplets are played using a pull off technique that allows for a faster smoothing sound than picking the notes would easily allow. Note: as usual my guitar is tuned down a half step if you want to play along.
