Townshend frequently used the pentatonic scales in his fills, licks & solos. His early influences were from R&B, blues & jazz players. So his lead playing was frequently simpler than his British Invasion peers. But it was also more melodic than his peers! He freely combined major and minor pentatonic sounds, played off chord shapes, and used plenty of expressive techniques such as hammer ons and pull offs, bending, and vibrato!
