Be a Better Acoustic Guitarist: Soloing with Pentatonic Scales


With so many notes on your guitar’s fretboard, it can be hard to know which ones to use to craft a solo. But here’s a little secret: artists like Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Duane Allman often used only five notes to create some of the greatest solos of all time, employing the magic of the minor-pen­tatonic scale and its close relative, the major-pentatonic scale.

Guitarist Andrew DuBrock offers some sound advice on making your solos livelier and more dynamic.
