Watch the Fourths, Fifths, Sixths: 14 online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from SoloCraft

Take a listen to my explanation for how to locate the relative minor and major keys and scales we discussed. In every major key there is a relative minor. The relative minor can be located by counting up to the 6th note of the major scale. In the key of G the relative minor would be E. Count up the G major scale for yourselves and you will see what I mean. Confused? Don't be, it will all make perfect sense when we use the E minor pentatonic scale next to play a pedal steel bend over our G chord.
