  • In this lesson we'll study the minor pentatonic scale. This is a very basic scale but has the advantage of being useful in almost every musiclal context.

    The minor pentatonic is a 5 note scale. The notes of the scale are the root, minor 3rd, natural 4th, natural 5th and minor 7th.

    The chord progression is in the key of A minor.

    Study these licks and use them in your own music. These ideas are expandable and can be the starting point of something very personal.
