Watch the Selecting Positions for Soloing: 2 online guitar lesson by David Wallimann from Guitar DNA: Pentatonics

Using the same principles previously studied, we'll now combine minor and Major chords. The chord progression we'll use in this example is E, Cm, B, and D#m.

E - Major pentatonic position 4
Cm - minor pentatonic position 1
B - Major pentatonic position 1
D#m - minor pentatonic position 4
