    marty how do you get that awesome blues sound?

  5. franktib says:

    @mightyzorro A chord tone is the 1st 3rd and 5th interval of the scale if its a triad or 1 3 5 7 for a seventh. So if the song is in G & the progression is say G to C to D u would start on a 1,3,5 or 7 related to the chord of the measure. In pentatonic minor ud be thinking of starting on a G(1) Bb(3) D(5) or F(5) over the G. Over the C ud want a C(1) E(3) G(5) or Bb(7).

    U get the idea? now the pentatonic is nice cuz most of the notes work but the forth doesnt so much so if you land hard on a G wen the d chord shows up u will sound off. Think on that and get back to me.

  7. mightyzorro says:

    @franktib what do you mean by “chord tone”?

  8. franktib says:

    @mightyzorro best to start on a chord tone. ie: 1,3,5 or 7

  9. littlelizum42 says:

    whats the song or scale that’s playing in the background? thanks….

  10. mightyzorro says:

    i have a soloing question for you… lets say the song is in G, and your gona start your solo, using the minor pentatonic scale.. do you HAVE TO start on a “G” note? or can it be started on any note that falls on the G minor pentatonic scale?


    @Book5550 I don’t think so because flatwound’s have more of a bass sound.

  12. babolatXD says:

  13. Book5550 says:

    This guy knows how to play some guitar–you should release a CD. The pentatonic scale is a must know to play lead. Check out Curtis Mitchell’s “Play’n Rock’n Roll” sideshow. It has a 2 minute guitar solo. The chords are major chords, E, B back and forth, then E, A, D, C. I am from Dallas and used to watch Curtis Mitchell and he is actually a blues guitar player.

  22. Hunter82x says:

    great lesson, thank you!!!

  23. Benjamintolong says:

    the easiest way to remember your major pentatonic is by remembering that its always the sixth degree of the key or scale you are playing in…So the key of E for example, the major would be C# pentatonic
