Watch the Position 5 Solo Study online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Blues Connections: Minor

Our last position solo will start with mode 4 in A minor at the 2nd fret. The minor pentatonics for the iv and v chords will also be in this position. Here's what you should review: Mode 5 in A minor pentatonic, mode 3 in D minor pentatonic, and mode 2 in E minor pentatonic. After you review them, take a minute to map out the chord tones for each one. When you feel you have the solo in your hands, print out the solo and begin to label and analyze where and what the chord tones are, any recurring motifs, compositional devices, and moments of anticipating chord changes.
