Pentatonic Solo

Guitar Scale Pentatonic Solo
Just for remembering U
Always practice with tempo
Let get started....!!!

We're gonna play solo on this progression :

( 4 beats in every | | )

| Gmaj7   | Cmaj7    | Gmaj7        | %        |
| Cmaj7 | % | Gmaj7 | % |
| D7 | Cmaj7 | Gmaj7 Cmaj7 | Gmaj7 D7 |

Over this nice jazzy blues you can play in G major, and stay
within the scale the whole time.

e.g. :
G A B C D E F# G

E |---------------------------0----2----3---
B |------------0----1----3------------------
G |--0----2---------------------------------
D |-----------------------------------------
A |-----------------------------------------
E |-----------------------------------------

It is also possible to play E minor pentatonic, A minor penta-
tonic and B minor pentatonic on the same progression. This is
because of the notest that make up these scales :

E minor pentatonic : E G A B D E
A minor pentatonic : A C D E G A
B minor pentatonic : B D E F# A B

You can see that none of the notes in above scales are
"wrong"( sound dissonant ). Of course there is no such
thing as "wrong" or "right", dissonants can be very nice

Tip : careful though with bending ! And try to put the empha-
sis on other notes that you're used to when playing "normal"
one-scale blues licks.

LAB 1 :
Record the progression in a slow tempo, and try which scales
fit best on which chords. Also try these :
A minor pentatonic on the Cmaj7 and D7 chords
B minor pentatonic on the Gmaj7 and D7 chords

Now for the position, that is, at which fret your
left hand is located ( right-hand players ).
You can slide this fingering

e.g. A minor pentatonic :

E |---------------------------------------------5-----8-
B |----------------------------------5----8-------------
G |-------------------------5---7-----------------------
D |-----------------5---7-------------------------------
A |---------5---7---------------------------------------
E |-5---8-----------------------------------------------

up 2 frets to get B minor pentatonic and down 5 frets for
E minor pentatonic.

LAB 2 :

Find out, at a fixed fret position, how to play all three
scales. Then you are able to switch scales faster.

Have fun,!!!!!
