  • Today's lesson will help you memorize the 5 positions of the pentatonic scale. We'll work in A major.

    The major pentatonic scale has a relative minor pentatoinic scale, which means that both of these scales share the same notes and positions.
    What makes one sound major or minor depends on the chords in the background.

    Memorize these positions and try them on the backing track I provided here. Thisa is an excellent exercice to memorize them and be comfortable with them all across the fretboard.

    Have fun!
