Watch the Week 3: The Minor Mode and Pentatonic Connection online guitar lesson by Joe Pinnavaia from Guitar Soloing Essentials
This lesson focuses on the use of minor pentatonic over each minor chord within the major scale. So for an A minor 7 chord, we can use D minor pentatonic over it as well as the tonic A minor pentatonic. Also the mode for that area can be used as well - A minor, A Aeolian, D minor, D Dorian, E Minor, and E Phrygian. Another neat experiment is to take the minor pentatonic a whole step above the root and play the pentatonic and add the minor third of the chord. So for the D minor7 chord you can play E minor pentatonic and add F to the scale. Some very different note choices come forth! Have fun!
