Watch the Section 1: Major Pentatonic online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Power Play: Dominant
In this first section we are going to be improvising using all five major pentatonic shapes. We'll be applying those 5 shapes over a dominant chord progression that changes key 4 times. The sequence of 4 key changes will loop for a total of four times. The idea is to solidify your knowledge of each of those shapes in position on the fretboard and to use them freely across the fretboard without restriction. The challenges are to be able to do that through a series of continuous key changes and to craft 8 bar solos that have cool phrasing, sweet notes and a beginning, middle and crescendo as well.
