Watch the Pentatonic Scale online guitar lesson by Geoff Hartwell from Guitar Lab: Electric Slide

That’s right, folks! Your friend and mine, the Pentatonic scale! In this case we’re using the notes of the E Minor Pentatonic scale on the first string, but these ideas apply to all of the pentatonics, on any string. And we can use these ideas in ANY STYLE OF MUSIC! Most of you have used this scale before in blues and rock, but pay close attention to the plucking and muting, as well as your intonation. Start by targeting each note and separating them by resting your finger back on the string before plucking the next note. Memorize the names and locations of these notes as well. I guarantee you’ll need them to navigate sooner or later!
