Pentatonic Guitar Lick #3

Another repeating guitar lickbased around the C# Minor Pentatonic scale and played over a chord progression of C7#9/B/A which is similar to "All Along the Watchtower" by Jimi Hendrix. The major difference being that "Watchtower" uses a Cminor chord not the 7#9. I left a bit of improv on both ends of the video for an example of how it would fit into a musical phrase. During the improvised section I also used the B note which is not in the scale. try altering the phrasing and tempo of the five note sequence and experiment with different accent notes.
