The Dm shaped Minor Pentatonic
B.B. King‘s favorite blues box, the Dm shape sits just above the Em shape.
If Em is the most popular shape, then Dm is certainly the runner up.
Not just a favorite of B.B., the Dm shape has had thousands of solos played inside her, usually in combination with the Em shape.
As usual, to learn this scale shape properly, first play it in Am and Dm as seen in the video lessons, followed by the full cycle of 4ths.
To start using this shape and to find out if you actually know it well enough, jam over Blues Jam Tracks and the 2 Chord Loops (both a part of The Spy Tunes Method).
