Guitar Solo - C# Minor Pentatonic Scale

Today's guitar lick looks at some C# Minor Pentatonic licks played over a C#Minor / B / A backing track.
The guitar solo as written in the tab is played through once then similar licks are improvised over the remainder of the track. The licks are primarily based around the first two shapes on the minor pentatonic scale. I was shooting for a Hendrix vibe so I played with a Univibe effect to 60's things up a bit. I played the written tab pretty loosely so listen to the music in the video for the phrasing. I encourage you to lay down your own track using these chords and practice some C# Minor Pentatonic licks over that.
