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 fourth string. All the techniques presented in lessons one and two are applied to the fourth string as well as 16th note figures and right-hand tapping.

As you advance through these lessons and practice the drills that are presented, your endurance and speed will improve as well as your ability to visualize the A minor pentatonic scale any linear sense along the string axis. The minor pentatonic scale is always built with the following intervallic pattern: minor third, major second, major second, minor third, and major second. One of your goals is to see this on different strings. At this point, this wide-angle viewing of the scale along the string axis should be coming into focus from practicing on various strings.

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