Watch the Custom Phrygian Pentatonic online guitar lesson by David Wallimann from Guitar DNA: Pentatonics

Let's build a custom Phrygian pentatonic scale! Although there's more than one possible custom Dorian pentatonic scale, we'll use the following formula which respects the rules described in the previous section: 1-b2-4-5-b7

To make things more interesting and easier to play, we'll change the formula in the second octave: b2-b3-4-5-b7.
