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

Here's another version of a pentatonic scale, the Major Pentatonic scale. Used sparingly it can create a really diverse sound in your playing, used too much and you will grow a trucker hat on your head and all of your songs will be about picking up girls while driving a pickup truck. You'll be a country artist. So be warned, but don't let that stop you from owning this scale, I will show you how to get in and out of it without having to move to Nashville. Not that living in Nashville is bad. Lots of metal guys live in Nashville now.
