SC-400 • The Major Pentatonic Scale Index

Justinguitar.com on Scales

Everything you might want to know about The Major Pentatonic Scale, how it works, patterns to play and how to use it!

I've has an interesting relationship with the Major Pentatonic, for many years I didn't really 'get it', I found it hard to use and it never seemed to feel right, so I just ignored it. But as I've explored more Blues I've found I like it more and more and now I love it and use it all the time!! Though not quite as easy to use in Blues as the Minor Pentatonic (see Why and How!), it's GREAT for major key improvising and really worth checking out!
