  • Hi GMC!

    In this lesson we gonna see an interresting, modern and cool sounding scale: the minor added sixth pentatonic scale.
    This scale is commonly used by guitarists such as Robben Ford, Larry Carlton, John Scofield...

    It's basicaly a minor pentatonic scale in wich we replace the b7 by the 6th. (In G we replace the F with E)

    The backing is over a G7 vamp and I strickly use the G minor add6th pentatonic scale with the Blue note.

    We've got:

    G Bb C D E
    1 3m 4 5 6

    Of course we can also play the blue note (C#).

    We could use this scale over different chords:

    - G7 chord (used in the backing track)
    - G minor 7 chord
    - Over a Blues in G - it works very well over the G7 and C7 chords.

    Good practice!
