Speed Building Lick is a free video lesson by Jody Worrell where you'll learn a guitar lick that can be used to work on building up your speed. This lick is based on the G Major Pentatonic scale and features an even number of notes per string which makes the picking hand's job easier. This lesson provides a great opportunity to practice with a metronome. Play along in time and slowly increase the bpm until you can play the lick at a blazing speed. If you want to learn a solo using the major pentatonic scale, take a look at Jody's Dickey Betts Style Solo lessons.

Dickey Betts Style Solo 1 by Jody Worrell is a downloadable Quicktime video lesson that will teach you some rock guitar licks. These licks are in the style of Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickey Betts. Dickey's style is built mostly out of the major pentatonic scale and often features rapid-fire loops of notes in that scale. Jody will teach you how to play each section of the solo in detail and then play them along with a rhythm track. The download also includes a .pdf of the tabs.
