Learn how changing pentatonic scale over minor key progressions can open up your musical options for playing melodic guitar solos. If you found this (or any) lesson useful, please consider donating to keep the free lessons coming - http://www.fretjam.com/support.html Thanks! I really appreciate it. In this lesson, I show you an alternative to playing the same minor pentatonic scale over a chord progression. By changing pentatonic scales with the chords, we can connect to those chords more musically and expand our phrasing options.

Please support fretjam: http://www.fretjam.com/support.html This lesson shows you a far more effective way of soloing over blues progressions than what most guitarists are taught. Instead of playing a single pentatonic/blues scale pattern through the 1 4 5 chord changes, you can turn an ordinary sounding blues solo into an extraordinary solo by having a greater melodic respect for each chord. That means being aware of each chord's tones and being able to confidently target these tones when the chord changes. By thinking more carefully about note selection through a blues progression, your solo will sound more expressive and connected to what's actually being played in the background, rather than confining yourself to the convenience of a single scale pattern.

Major pentatonic is probably the most commonly used major key scale, so it's a good place to begin with scales.

But even if you're already familiar with the scale, this lesson will go further than simply showing you fingering patterns. It shows you how to apply the scale musically and intuitively.
The process outlined in this video and on the lesson page will help you to develop your improvisation and composition skills, so you'll know how to make music with the scale instead of wandering up and down aimlessly.
