About Robbie Laws' 30 Penta Sonic Blues Licks You MUST Know

Learn how to play 30 must-know pentatonic blues licks

Most blues players tend to get stuck in one or two positions when soloing, when in fact there are 5 positions available across the fretboard. In Robbie Laws’ 30 Penta Sonic Blues Licks You MUST Know you’ll learn 30 moveable blues licks in this course — six for each of the five positions! Robbie also shows you the fingering patterns for all five positions so that you can create your own licks on the fly, anywhere on the fretboard, in any key.

”Many players feel trapped in one or two pentatonic box positions, which really limits your choices on the fretboard, and ultimately limits your ability to convey emotion through your playing. I'm going to show you the absolute best way to learn all your pentatonic positions in any key, but as you're learning these positions, you’ll also be adding 30 killer ‘penta sonic’ licks to your vocabulary.”

Robbie Laws is one of the most decorated guitarists in the Pacific Northwest. He has been honored with 21 Portland Cascade Blues Association Muddy Awards, nine of which were for Best Electric Guitarist. Having played with a host of guitar legends ranging from Albert Collins to Ronnie Earl, Robbie has thrilled festival and concert audiences for over 15 years. We’re very proud to welcome Robbie to the family with his first TrueFire course, 30 Penta Sonic Blues Licks You MUST Know.

”Imagine having the confidence to express yourself anywhere on the fingerboard in any key, at any time. In this course, you’ll learn how to incorporate longitude and latitude in your playing, allowing you to create licks, lines and chord voicings anywhere on the fretboard.”

Robbie first gives you a primer on the five pentatonic patterns and then demonstrates all 30 of the licks over rhythm tracks followed by a detailed breakdown for each lick. All of the licks are tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes. 

You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can loop and/or slow any section down as you work through the lessons. Plus, Robbie generously includes all of the rhythm tracks for you to work with on your own.

Grab your guitar and let’s get Penta Sonic with Robbie Laws!


Great course!! One of my favorites
I have dozens of courses and really enjoyed them but this is one of my favorites...simply the way it was laid out...licks in position 1, licks for position 2, etc. This really made it easy to learn and retain licks and for composing solos...Robbie is a good teacher and easy to listen to and understand. Great Job.

Great Course
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I purchased this course, but I have been thoroughly impressed by Robbie’s teaching method and exercises included in this course. Very nice for breaking out the typical pentatonic rut we all fall into. You will discover some new sounds, new licks, and a greater understanding on your playing and skill level.

Great departure from predictable...
I loved the licks in this course - they all sounded fresh! Also, they typically take more then 2-3 measures, so you can slice them and use just parts. Technically, they are intermediate (which works for me). After checking several pentatonic licks courses, I though this one was by far the best.

Fresh perspective on pentatonic playing
I have to say that this course increased my appreciation for pentatonic playing. A lot of these licks don’t sound like pentatonics, as Robbie adds in other notes here and there to colour things. Also good for developing timing, as some licks require that you start on a specific beat. There are only a couple licks that I might retain in my style of playing, but I will be referring back to this course in future for a refresher. Definitely a fresh perspective on pentatonic playing.
