Hey guys, here's the topic for all the video chats I hold, you will find future video chat content here as well! smile.gif

Sunday 26th of November

- Session 1 (of the 3-session Pentatonic Course): Pentatonic scale, boxes 4 & 5, connecting them with slides

We covered two pentatonic positions of the A minor pentatonic scale:

Position 4:


Position 5:


We went up and down on the position along side with the backing tracks. We also worked on two sliding licks that can help us connect these two positions together. You can also see the chords that were used on top of these licks, relative to the starting and ending note of the licks:

What is important is that we covered 5 chords with these patterns: Am, C, Dm, Em, G. While going up & down the pattern, we made stops on each chord's root note. So when practicing these patterns, play a backing track (i.e. C major), and while playing the pattern, stop on every C note along the way. This will get yourself familiar and comfortable of finding/using that note later on when playing.

Lick 1 (Am)


Lick 2 (Em)





Sunday 4th of December 2011

This is the Session 2 of the Pentatonic Course, and we worked on two more pentatonic scale positions with the backing tracks (on top of C, Dm, Em, G and Am chords).

Position 1:


Position 2:


Let's put these patterns into context, and tighten them up a bit as well. Here are some of the things we we will work on today:

- starting from low tempos
- starting and ending our sequences on a root note (of the chord in the backing) and making a stop on a root note of the chord along the way
- increasing speed gradually
- covering position connections with slides


Sunday 11th of December 2011

For today's (final) pentatonic session 3, we go through the last position that we have left - position 3 of the Am pentatonic scale. We will practice this position up and down following the root notes of the chords playing in the background.



For the second part of the chat, we will try to connect different positions together, but again with using the notes in context, not just playing randomly. These sliding connections are extremely important as they provide foundation for moving horizontally across the neck, and "breaking out of the box". Here are the essential 4 slide connections we will go through:

Example 1:


Example 2:



Example 3:



Example 4:



As with up & down sequences on the boxes themselves, here we will also start the sliding sequences on the root note (of a chord in the backing track), and end the sequence on the root note. Find the root notes in the patterns, and form the sequences according to backing track you are playing with.

Topic will be updated briefly, stay tuned...
