Watch the Minor Pentatonic / Blues Scale online guitar lesson by Angus Clark from Hard Rock Survival Guide: Lead

The minor, or blues, pentatonic scale is the home base for any blues-based music played on the guitar, so that is where we are going to start. While covering this basic fingering I am also reviewing fundamentals of hand position, picking, and hand synchronization. These are the fundamentals of creating sound on the guitar and everything else hinges on your control of these elements. If this is all new material for you, you're getting two lessons in one, if you already know the scale, you should still take the time to review these fundamentals.
