  • Minor Pentatonic is one of the most well know scale by any player, so should be with seven strings guitar too. I'll show a way to learn it quick and fast comparing the shapes you already know with the notes on the seventh string.

    Seven String Guitar
    Pentatonic Knowledge


    Seven Strings Pentatonic - B minor - 100 Bpm
    --------------------------------------------

    The study starts at seventh fret on sixth string, ascending the B minor pentatonic, and then descending to the low seventh string. These way you are forced to see the one string more as an addition instead of a new shape, learning it fast.

    Techniques Focus
    ----------------

    It's important to play this exercise from beginning to end, flawless, you have many different speed backing tracks, but most important, spend some time practicing with "no-tempo" on each of the five Boxes.

    Theory Focus
    ------------

    Pentatonic scale is made by five sounds or notes, leaving out semitones from is parent scale (B minor) and playing only: Root - minor 3rd - perfect four - perfect five - minor seven.

    That leaves us with a safe scale to play over minor chords.

    Pro Tips
    --------

    By the way our brain works, you will learn always faster, if you compare material you already know, with new stuff.

    Keep Practicing & Seven-Riffing!
