  • Hey there! Welcome to '8-Finger Tapping Scales - Minor pentatonic #1'! As the title says, this lesson will teach you how to play the minor pentatonic scale, by using the 8-finger tapping technique.
    Since you are now able to play legato with both hands, this represents a great advantage in playing scales. The idea is to use your left hand for one position and your right hand for another position, so technically this is the minor pentatonic scale - four notes per string.

    In this lesson we will be using positions #1 and #3 of the minor pentatonic scale, using your tapping hand for the #3 position.

    The lesson is consisted of two exercises. In the first exercise, we play four notes ascending and four notes descending, on each string. In the second exercise, we use string skipping, so that we can skip the notes we already played by tapping them, proceeding to the next note in scale, ascending eight notes and descending them - summing two strings. The exercise pairs strings: 6+4, 5+3, 4+2 and 3+1.

    Tuning: EBGDAE;
    Key: a minor;
    Tempo: 110 BPM;
    Time signature: 4/4.
