  • Hi GMC-ers!

    Welcome to the second part of Bluesland! I hope that the first part gave some help to everyone, learning and using the pentatonic scale in its' different positions. In the first part we played an E-blues pentatonic scale in two positions. Now we will continue it with the third and fourth degree.

    I guess that the third degree is not the most popular position among the new blues learners. However this is a very playable and useful scale position. If we know its structure, the blues-notes, notes we can bend etc. , it can be a very useful scale. And there are some very characteristic blues patterns that can be played only in this position. In the first part of this lesson we can also hear some exercises for this position.

    The second part is in the fourth degree. This is a more frequently used scale. It’s almost the same as the first degree, but an octave higher. Pay more attention to the bends at the end of this part.

    This lesson includes the following techniques:

    -hammer ons, pull offs

    Good practicing!
