    THE PROFESSOR Getting that smooth, Southern Comfort soul into your playing, as you can hear in this lesson by Sinisa, often comes down to mixing in a bit of Major Pentatonic Scale ideas with your minor pentatonic ideas that you would normally fall back upon with a chord progression such as this. You can hear Sinisa jam with this sound over the G chord, where he plays the notes G, A and B, all notes of the G Major Pentatonic Scale. 

    So, to pour yourself a bit of Southern Comfort the next time you’re jamming over a tune, dig into the Major Pentatonic Scale System for some ideas that will take your playing in this style to that next level.
