    THE PROFESSOR Though they are both part of the Pentatonic Family, as you can hear in this sweet lesson by Sinisa, the major and minor pentatonic scales can produce different sounds depending on where you apply them. With a country, swing feel to it the major pentatonic scale has a brighter sound than it’s rock, blues and darker sounding minor pentatonic cousin. 

    Learning the difference between the Minor Pentatonic Scale and the Major Pentatonic Scale can make the world of difference when learning to play Blues in this style, as well as open up new doors in your soloing chops over a blues chord progression.

    Hi GMC!

    Welcome to my lesson about Blues phrasing. The classic blues standard usually has 12 bars, using mostly three chords and I/IV/V progression. In this lesson I'll show you some variations of the classic Blues riffing in the first part, and then the solo section that you can upgrade and play in your own manner.

    Important: the guitar tuning is EADGBE using 432 Hz tuning reference set on the guitar tuner.
