I think like a lot of people these days, I'm working from home and am self isolating. The area that I'm in has banned all non-essential travel...and things are getting pretty tense. To help combat the emotional weight of the situation, a lot of my friends across various social media platforms are uploading a ton of pictures of their pets, their kids doing ridiculous things around the house, hilariously bad makeup tutorials...and I'll be honest, it's been a nice reprieve from the grim state that we find ourselves in. I was chatting with a friend on Facebook who felt like he was just always just stuck in one pentatonic box, so I thought I'd draw inspiration from my buddies and record a little video showing a few really easy ways that you can spice up your typical pentatonic runs by just adding a couple of extra notes in there. If you're looking for a distraction and are stuck at home, hopefully you'll get a kick out of some of these licks. Stay safe everyone.
