Watch the A Minor Pentatonic online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Riff Generator

This lesson focuses on the A minor pentatonic scale as viewed on the first and sixth strings. We will apply the techniques from the previous lesson namely trills involving the open string as a pedal tone. In this case the open string will be the fifth, the second strongest toner in terms of tonal gravity. In addition to the descending triplets that were presented in lesson one, you will play ascending triplets with slurs. Instruction concerning the sequential components of the hammer on and pull off combinations used to execute these figures will be addressed.

Each lesson in this course is accompanied with specific color-coded diagrams to aid you in visualizing the information on the fingerboard.
