Pentatonic Power - Fast-Track Your Guitar Soloing

There you are jamming with your buddies, and it’s your turn to improvise.  You fall back on that one lick you know, in that one pentatonic scale box. Then you hit a few more random notes in that same position and pass the lead duties onto your other buddy. 

You had sounds in your head, but you can’t find them. You feel stuck in your playing, and frustration is setting in because you can’t visualize your fretboard beyond that one pentatonic scale box that so many of your guitar heroes used with ease, but you can’t seem to figure out how they got there.  Is it some kind of sorcery that only pro players can achieve? 

What if I told you that the pentatonic box you know is just a byproduct of the scale? While that box and the other 4 boxes are useful, there are many, many more ways to use pentatonics in your playing.  First, I’m going to teach you how the pentatonic scale is built.  Then we’re going to dig deeper and learn how to utilize it over the entire fretboard step-by-step so that you never feel trapped “in the box.”  It’s time for you to unleash Pentatonic Power and begin taking control of your soloing skills.

In this course, you will learn:

  • The intervals of the Major Scale

  • The intervals of the Minor Pentatonic Scale

  • How to visualize and identify the intervals of the minor pentatonic scale from anywhere on the fretboard

  • Multiple diagonal scale patterns that allow you to easily move around the fretboard

  • Simple improvisation over included backing tracks

  • Create your own licks and much more

This course is great for beginners and anyone else who’s looking for a deeper understanding of the minor pentatonic scale.  This isn’t a lick-based course that’s technically demanding. 

See ya inside!
