Here is a guitar scale chart for the basic F# minor scale form this lick comes out of. So these are some other note choice you might add as you are improving with this lick in your own guitar solos.
F# Minor Guitar Scale Chart
If you wanted to play this guitar lick in another key, the very 1st note in the lick is one you can use as a reference, or the note that’s on the 1st string towards the end. In this case, both of those notes are F#. So if you want to play this lick in A minor, just shift all of the notes in the guitar lick up 3 fret so those 2 notes would be A.
Have fun with you new Mike Campbell guitar lick.
