This funky track gives you lots of space to get really creative with your ideas! We give you some scales to get you started too.

Scales: A Minor Pentatonic

As always, a fantastic place to start is with your pentatonic scale. This track is based around A minor, and actually uses a repeating A minor pentatonic phrase, so A minor pentatonic is a really good choice. Here's the scale in all positions:

Top Tip: Break Out Of The Box

If you feel like you always go back to Shape 1 try to force yourself to play in any of the other shapes, and try not to use Shape 1 at all. It will feel very strange at first, but you might just come up with some brand new licks!

Scales: A Minor Full Scale

This track uses an A minor followed by an F major 7. This outlines a few key notes for us. First of all we know we've got the 1, b3 and 5 from A minor, plus the F from the F major 7 gives us the b6. So another good choice would be A Natural Minor Scale:

Chords: Arpeggios

This track just uses 2 chords, A Minor and F Major 7. Here are the chord diagrams:

If you'd like to try something a little bit different here's an A minor arpeggio shape too:
