If there’s one scale that every guitar player knows and loves; it’s the minor pentatonic scale. It’s used to solo over any tune with a blues feel. The best part is it’s movable up and down the neck. So, depending on your tonal center (key) you just play the same scale but starting at a different fret. Couldn't be easier!
