Here’s a quick lesson on how to link together five positions of a minor pentatonic scale. In this lesson I am showing you how to move from one position to another along the guitar neck. It creates pretty cool results. This kind of style of playing you can find on some recordings of Paul Gilbert, Zakk Wylde and Dough Aldridge and a bunch of other great guitar players. The idea is to move away from the first position of the minor pentatonic scale that after a while sounds pretty boring.
The best bet will be to learn all the positions of the minor pentatonic scale and practice them on pair of strings moving up and down the neck, play it backwards, create as many scale sequences as you can imagine. Then apply these concepts in your playing. Try to integrate it with another techniques maybe bends or vibrato. Hope you will have fun. Please do let me know if you like the video and if you have any questions.
