  • Because of the way the guitar is built, we can find many different scale positions using the same notes. That is because you can play the same exact note on different frets. Today we will take a look at one og rock's favourite scales: the minor pentatonic scale. That scale is a great way to get into lead guitar. It is a fairly easy scale to play and the possibilities it offers are almost endless.

    The goal of this lesson is to get you comfortable with the different scale positions offered below and to mix them to create some longer licks all over the fretboard. We'll work in the key of E minor pentatonic.

    Before working on the licks, spend time memorizing the positions and work your way slowly with as much precision as possible, then use the looped backing track to make up your own licks. Have fun!
