  • Hi GMC-ers!

    Welcome to the third part of my blues series entitles Bluesland!
    We came to the last mode of the pentatonic scale. In this lesson we play and practice to the 5th mode, then to the first mode again, but in another position at the 12th fret.
    Notice that in each mode you can be playe bluesy phrases, in addition every mode has it’s typical patterns that we can play only in that particual position. If we have already learnt the five modes plus the first mode an octave higher, let’s try to improvise always focusing only on the particular scale and afterwards try to connect the better sounding patterns. Our intention should be to be improvisation in each mode.

    In th first part of the lesson we use the E blues pentatonic scale at the 9th fret. We can see how we are allowed to move in this position, which notes we can play and what strings we are allowed to play together.
    In the second part, we are in the first mode again, but for this time at th 12th fret, and octave higher. This lesson is similar a bit to the first, but we don’t use open-strings here. In my opinion, this is the most frequently used scale regardless of any genre.

    This lesson includes the following techniques:
    -hammer-ons , pull-offs

    Have fun!
