Watch the Minor Pentatonic Scale online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from Jazz Scales Handbook
Continuing our look at the pentatonic scale, in this lesson we're going to take a look at one of the stalwart scale choices and fingerings in any guitar player's toolbox...the minor pentatonic scale.
In this lesson, we'll be focusing on the G minor pentatonic scale in 3rd position. We'll learn the entire two octave fingering and compare it to the minor 7th chord arpeggio. Once again, we'll see that the difference between the minor pentatonic scale and the arpeggio fingering is only one note. Being able to understand this connection will lead to more musical applications of the scale in your own playing.
