Watch the Playing In Position: Major Pentatonic online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Power Play: Major

Your first exercise is to play your major pentatonic scale shapes in position over the first sequence of chord changes. 8 measures each of G-A-B-C respectively. Improvise a solo for each key staying in position on the fretboard. The sequence will repeat four times. This should be ample time for you to explore the shapes in the position you choose. Take a break and then prepare yourself to play the next shapes up on the fretboard (position 2). These will all be new shapes for each new key. Now play through the complete sequence of changes again in the next fretboard location. Your assignment is to repeat the process moving through all five positions of the major pentatonic scale shapes in position each time. An extra challenge for those of you who can play all of your major pentatonic scale shapes - shift to the next location on the fretboard after one sequence of four key changes. This means by the end of the full track you'll have played in four different fretboard locations!
