Dm Pentatonic Licks

Dm Pentatonic Licks is a free guitar video lesson by Peter Vogl that will show you how to play several guitar licks in the key of D. We'll use the D Minor Pentatonic scale in several positions to create licks to play over track 11, Static in D, of the Let's Jam! Hard Rock. The licks feature bends, double stops, and hammer ons.
