Learn How To Play the Minor Pentatonic Scale Anywhere on the Fretboard
Flying up and down the guitar neck is easy when you know how. You just have to know how to join the dots. If you can play the common chords and you’ve already messed around with the pentatonic Box 1 pattern then you’ve already done the hard part; it’s time to move on and own the minor pentatonic scale … just about the most important scale to master in rock, blues, pop and many other genres.
Pentatonic Scale Fluency by Lee Nichols will show you how to connect all the minor pentatonic positions throughout the fretboard and how to break the scale positions down and piece them back together to make them usable. It will also help you keep your focus simple — examples are all in A minor so that you can achieve results fast.
The book includes:
- Diagrams and easy TAB exercises.
- Links to download audio examples for the exercises.
- Links to download a practice / jam along track in each of the 12 keys.
Although the contents of this book are quite straightforward, it’s not recommended for absolute beginners. You should be able to play the common open and bar chords and preferably have at least some experience with the minor pentatonic scale to get the most out of it.
