"For most guitar players their introduction to improvisation is through using the minor pentatonic scale. One of the benefits of this scale is that it sounds good over a minor blues, major blues and good amount of rock progressions. Unfortunately, too many guitarists never take the next steps and actually learn how to play over changes with it. In other words, being able to use the corresponding scale to the chord you are playing over.”Blues Connections: Minor lays out a system for learning how to play over changes, which will bring a whole new depth to your lead playing by focusing on building a language, not just connecting licks. We'll achieve this by doing a few things: Knowing our minor pentatonic scales in all five positions and in multiple keys, voice leading the minor pentatonics into each other, connecting our positions, minor chord arpeggios and targeting their extensions, converting the minor pentatonic into a blues scale and using improvisational devices to shape powerful solos.
