Watch the Weekly Workout #3 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym Weekly Workouts: Vol. 1
The idea in this weekly workout is to play the 5 pentatonic scale fingerings in a local, vertical position while they all center on a common tonal/root center. This way you're playing the five scales as the five modes that they are, which is:
To help with this, I've provided you with a PDF of five local chords that correspond to each mode - look for it as page 2 of the PDF after the chart. I use chord visions to reference everything I play: scales, arpeggios and their resultant licks. It works like a charm!
The initial goal is to play this sequence in 1/8 notes at 100 BPM. Then, you're off to the scalular Stanley Cup, with 16th notes at 100 BPM!
