Watch the JAM: Sliding Pentatonic online guitar lesson by Susan Mazer from Hands On Guitar: Beyond Beginner

After you try the sliding major pentatonic scale over this tune, try using the box scale to solo. If you start three frets back from a “G” note, you’ll end up playing the scale starting on an open note, or at the 12 fret (octave). You can also try the next position of the box scale that would start at the 3rd fret. Try them all.
