Watch the C Minor Pentatonic online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Big Blues & Beyond
The previous lesson explained the concept of the "low" and "high" sides of the minor pentatonic scale (6th string root form). You were given examples of double-stops on adjacent strings within these two borders of the scale.(Low and high sides)
This lesson applies the same information except we will be playing triple-stops on three adjacent strings. These structures have a more jazzy quality and they lend themselves to a cleaner sound.
I will explain your fingering options with special emphasis on posture, economy of motion, and of course, those dip joints (the last joint on your finger). You will have to hyperextend these joints which may be uncomfortable but if you want to play well, don't overlook this critical technical issue.
I'll finish this lesson with a recap of the double-stops. I'll also explain the concept of using every other note of the pentatonic scale and how to harmonize a lick with double-stops.
