    @martyzsongs
    is it ok if i use the minor pentatonic scales if the song is in a major key? or should i just use the major pentatonic?

    very good lesson to start with the 5 pentatonic notes as a base and then to the blues  …

  • asfsdavd:

    i used to ask that a lot too because I couldn’t get my guitar to sound “right” . . . just fiddle around with what you’ve got and you can find a sound you like man.

    This is my exact inner structure done in a tee shirt.

  • Didier Valles:

    I like the hat !

  • TheSakorsky:

    Thanks,makes sense now that you said that.

  • enikyne:

    you can. when he demonstrates the 12th fret scale, it’s the exact same, instead with open strings :)

  • 14FAILX41:

    Damn you’ re right! :D

  • TheSakorsky:

    Could someone please tell me if you can play the A Minor Pentatonic lower then the 5 fret like the 3rd fret or so ?Nobody says if you can or cant.

  • countryclassic:

    They are based on the CAGED system. This video starts with the G shape scale then goes down to the A shape. Then up again to the ED and C shapes.

  • jon carley:

    it’s just down to which strings and at what frets are being played it’s hard to explain but it’s just something that naturally happens because of the way the notes occur on the strings with regard to the frets thats why you find chords and scales moveable have a look at scale theory and it will become clearer

  • seth olson:

    Example: minor pentatonic formula is 1, b3, 4, 5 , b7, 1 when you see a b it simply means play the note 1 half step below the note of the major scale # means 1 half step above
    A Major again is A, B, C#, D, E, F#, G#, A (12345678)
    So Aminor pent 1=A b3= C 4=D 5=E b7=G ACDEG
    if I am not being detailed enough let me know and i will try to elaborate.
