Here's a typical lick in the style of Brent Mason using the A Form Scale. It's in the key of C major and uses hammer-ons and pull-offs. Really work to get the notes using the articulations to sound. Also note our use of a bend to achieve chromaticism. We bend the note on the 5th fret of the A string from a D to an Eb. An Eb is the flatted 3rd in the scale. This is the same chromaticism we practice in our Introduction to Chromaticism.
