A Better Way to Learn Major Pentatonic on Guitar

Share it with your friends Like

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Major pentatonic is probably the most commonly used major key scale, so it’s a good place to begin with scales.

Please support fretjam: http://www.fretjam.com/support.html

But even if you’re already familiar with the scale, this lesson will go further than simply showing you fingering patterns. It shows you how to apply the scale musically and intuitively.

The process outlined in this video and on the lesson page will help you to develop your improvisation and composition skills, so you’ll know how to make music with the scale instead of wandering up and down aimlessly.

Be sure to get your backing tracks, exercises and diagrams on the lesson page…

Don Lawrence says:

I've been playing for 51 years and I hear and feel the scales. I am an accomplished guitar player. However, I don't really know the scales to identify what I am really doing. These lessons are a Godsend. What an eye-opener! LIek taking blinders off. I've been playing scales but now I am starting to see them.

Why is this the same scale as the A minor pentatonic? is it because of the similarities between the root chords?
