Connecting Pentatonic Patterns: Series 1

Lesson Info

In this tutorial we will learn a lick that incorporates all 5 fretboard shapes/positions that form the pentatonic minor scale. The idea is to play a simple repeating pattern of six notes on the top two strings (E and B strings). We use the first pentatonic position and this results in a pattern that has two notes on each string, both three frets apart. Then, we build the same type of pattern and lick, but using the second pentatonic position. We continue on to the third, fourth, fifth and finally first position again one octave higher.
