Very nice blues licks Ivan - being able to mix major and minor pentatonic boxes all over the fretboard is a must for a modern blues guitarist!
I am not able to mix both yet so great lesson.
Useful lesson Ivan!
Thank you! This lesson (and all other in the series) are very useful for other styles of music as well, same concept is very often applied in various forms of rock, except the licks and execution varies from style to style. Important thing to learn here is the concept and both scales on top of each other, so the concept can be later applied to various styles.
Very interesting stuff in this one! Good job!
Great lesson! Similar concept can be applied to jazz, and other styles!
This is a great Series Ivan!!!

Great series. This is a very important aspect to learn. Thank you for covering all 5 boxes as well.
Hello GMC, and welcome to the third in line lesson of the series "Mixing Patterns In Blues".
In this lesson, we are covering the position 3 of both minor and major pentatonic scales. The reason we are covering all 5 position is because we learn to find our way on the entire fretboard.
Furthermore, you can combine different licks from all lesson in different positions, and experiment with various minor/major lick combinations to create a good balanced improvisation.
Not only is this concept good to use with blues music, but it can also be applied to other forms of music, specially many styles of rock. This particular lesson is based on B.B.King style of playing - lots of raked notes, natural mix of minor and major scales, and cool bendings.
Have Fun! :)
