    Seven Strings Pentatonic - B minor - 100 Bpm

    The study starts at seventh fret on sixth string, ascending the B minor pentatonic, and then descending to the low seventh string. These way you are forced to see the one string more as an addition instead of a new shape, learning it fast.

    Techniques Focus

    It's important to play this exercise from beginning to end, flawless, you have many different speed backing tracks, but most important, spend some time practicing with "no-tempo" on each of the five Boxes.

    Theory Focus

    Pentatonic scale is made by five sounds or notes, leaving out semitones from is parent scale (B minor) and playing only: Root - minor 3rd - perfect four - perfect five - minor seven.

    That leaves us with a safe scale to play over minor chords.

    Pro Tips

    By the way our brain works, you will learn always faster, if you compare material you already know, with new stuff.

    Keep Practicing & Seven-Riffing!
