Minor Pentatonic Improvisation
The minor pentatonic scale use the same notes as the minor chord: R, min 3rd and 5th.
These notes will appear in a few more places than just in the chord shape, for example, there’s a m3 on the 1st and 6th string, fret 8.
Two more notes are added to complete the scale: the 4th and the b7th.
The easiest way to look at a scale is to visualize a chord shape and then build the scale around that chord shape. Play around with Chordacus yourself to find out more.
The Em shaped Minor Pentatonic
The most famous of all guitar “box shapes” is the Em shape.
An endless amount of blues and blues/rock solos have been constructed here, many players rarely leave it!
The video lesson demonstrate how to practice the minor pentatonic.
When you can play the Em pentatonic scale shape in Am and Dm, continue through the cycle of 4ths, just like you did with the first barre chord exercises.
As usual, notate your progression and read all the TAB in the Work Book (a part of The Spy Tunes Method).
