Watch the Week 3: Basic Pentatonic Intro online guitar lesson by Kelly Richey from Building A Strong Blues Foundation

Minor and Major Pentatonic Scales

This is your main "road map" for playing blues/rock guitar solos.

Note: Many people break their pentatonics down into five fingerings or patterns. I break the pentatonics down into two basic patterns and expand each of them to provide a road map that allows students to develop speed and utilize the the neck of the guitar with ease. Watch these videos as needed throughout the week for your learning, and practice playing your pentatonics in their basic, expanded, and expanded with triplets patterns as part of your daily practice routine.
