Blues Guitar Tips: The Major Pentatonic Scale
As a guitarist, while you’re likely intimately familiar with the minor pentatonic scale, the major pentatonic scale might seem foreign. But actually, if you know the minor pentatonic scale, then you know its major counterpart. In this lesson by blues guitarist extraordinaire Pete Madsen, you’ll explore a handful of fingering patterns for that scale, then apply them to assorted licks, as well as a pair of solos on the 12-bar blues form. With any luck, in the process you’ll become just as fluid with the major pentatonic as the minor pentatonic scale.
