Watch the Working Within Borders online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Lick Logic
The pentatonic major scale can also be considered the pentatonic minor scale depending on its application. So, what I'd like to do here is take a different shape and use that over a major chord progression. The concept is exactly the same as in our minor/blues scale lesson, but the tonalities will sound different. So, I think it's worth solidifying this approach again so that you have tools for your own creative lick process from within a major tonality. If you're adept and want to challenge yourself, use any of the G major scale shapes and apply the same "standing still" approach. I've expanded our borders now to four strings. This will open up some more ideas and move you across the scale more each time. There's a method to why I'm doing this...you'll see!
