In this tutorial we will learn a lick that incorporates all 5 fretboard shapes/positions that form the pentatonic minor scale. This simple 4 note lick is very widely used in solos of many genres. The lick involves a hammer-on and a pull-off. Using this little pattern of 4 notes we can wind our way through connecting the pentatonic boxes. The mechanical technique involves combining a hammer-on and a pull-off on the upper string, then landing on a note on the lower adjacent string. For these example exercises we will use the B minor pentatonic scale. But you can and should apply these ideas to any pentatonic scale pattern.

If you are unfamiliar with the overall concept of the pentatonic scale and patterns, then you should work through these tutorials that explain everything you could want to know about the major and minor pentatonic scales.
