Pentatonic Major Scales

Today’s lesson focuses on the 5 major pentatonic scale forms. These forms are the main scales used in rock, blues, metal  and country music, so it is essential that you learn them thoroughly.

We will be using these scale forms in the coming lessons along with the Understanding Keys Lesson material to form a complete picture of Pentatonics in every key all over the guitar neck.

Try to follow the picking indication from the video for now and don’t forget the PDf download for the lesson as well.
