  • Hi GMC! Today we´ll continue working with triads but before we´ll talk about the major pentatonic scale. The idea is to practice the five different pentatonic boxes. First of all I recommend to recording a backing track with one chord played as a loop and then we´ll study the different shapes slowly. Take your time and study all of them.

    Once we have been playing every position for a long time we can play it in all the fretboard. (We must take a lot of patience, take it easy!).

    Now we can play the melody and improve using the major pentatonic scale, first in one box, then in other and then using all the neck.

    Secondly, now that you know very well all the shapes, it is a good exercise to play the melody combining the different shapes. Finally you can also harmonize the melody with triads.

    This will be very hard but you can do it!

    I hope you enjoy the lesson!
