Watch the Major Pentatonic: All Positions online guitar lesson by Tom Dempsey from Fretboard Phenom
This lesson will explore the fingerings of the C major pentatonic scale in all the tonality shapes. You will learn the fingerings in this section. But you will also learn a new methodology for studying the pentatonic scales that relates the sound of the scale to the root. You will play them within each individual tonality shape and then play them beginning on the lowest note of each tonality shape and play all the notes ascending in that position followed by descending in that single position using all the notes of the scale. Once you reach the lowest note you will then reverse direction and resolve to the lowest tonic of each position. This will help you to get the sound of the scale in your ears while reinforcing the fingering of the scale.
