Watch the Major Pentatonic Scale online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Bass Basics

Here is the first of the two Pentatonic scales we will be learning, the Major Pentatonic Scale. This scale is a series of five notes that outline the sound of the Major scale, and is the foundation of many licks and fills, and will be very useful to your grooving as well as your soloing. We’ll learn two different fingerings, the second of which includes a slide for a different sound and ease of playing. To finish off this segment, you will learn a very recognizable Bass line using your new friend, the Major Pentatonic Scale!
