I was wondering, if there was some kind of good way to practice this? I know my pentatonic scales fairly well, but I can't make them sound really connected and far-reaching like the famous players.Darren -- Minneapolis, MN. USAA: Pentatonic scales are not only one of the first scale concepts that we tend learn as guitarists, but they are without a doubt at the core of almost every contemporary musicians improvisational tool-kit. Pentatonic Scales represent a literal storehouse of musical ideas, since Pentatonic eliminates the half-steps found inside the full diatonic scale. There are a number of things you would of course need to do to become highly proficient at playing lines with Pentatonic across the entire guitar neck. However, one method I've taught that really helps get this going for my own students is the study of creating three-octave pentatonic shapes. I demonstrate three shapes in minor tonality in the video lesson. Learn these, play them in relative major and create your own as well.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------RELATIVE MAJOR & MINOR SCALES /KEY THEORY VIDEO:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfLazXX7ov0----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------MY TWITTER FEED:http://twitter.com/andrewwasson____________________________________ANDREW WASSON - Personal Website:http://www.andrewwasson.com(weekly postings - w/FREE Guitar Handouts)____________________________________Visit our Creative Guitar Studio Zazzle page:http://www.zazzle.com/creativeguitarstudio/gifts____________________________________OFFICIAL Creative Guitar Studio Products Website:http://www.creativeguitarstudio.com/____________________________________SOUND CLOUD: Listen to some of my songs.http://soundcloud.com/creativeguitarstudio/____________________________________2nd YOU TUBE CHANNEL: The Guitar BlogAndrew's Popular "GuitarBlog" YouTube Channel:http://www.youtube.com/guitarblogupdate____________________________________Facebook Fan Page:http://www.facebook.com/pages/Andrew-Wasson/76585035288____________________________________Creative Guitar Studio on Blogspot:http://creativeguitarstudio.blogspot.com/____________________________________
