Lesson ID: A0065
In this guitar lesson I’ll teach you an easy way to switch back and forth between the major and minor pentatonic scales. This is one of the most important concepts of playing lead guitar and it is very common in country and bluegrass music. Developing this technique will add a whole new layer to your soloing!

Thanks J T! Always great to hear positive feedback about the lessons. Glad they’re helping out.
Same scale shape : so i start major then go to minor. I got this. But i can obviously going from a one scale to another in a different shape … Right ? … Everything was understood.. Just the end …
It’s been a long time since I’ve taken a look at this lesson…can you be more specific with your question as far as going from one scale to another in a different shape? Are you talking about the proper path for learning the scales? Or moving from one scale position to another as you’re soloing?
It s ok , i went through other lessons explaining it so everything s gonna be alright ! Cheers
Good lesson Devin!
