  • 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! :)
