Guitar lesson 5
Now that you know how to pick each note and do a few exercises, it's time to learn scales. You will use scales to play leads and build melodies. Once you get over this small hurdle, things will really begin to fall into place. In our lessons, we will concentrate on the Am pentatonic scale and the Key of C major. Once you learn these scales, others will be just a matter of moving to a different location.
The Am pentatonic scale is a 5 note scale, that's what pentatonic means. The notes are A C D E and G.
(The little m after the A note above means the minor chord and we will learn more about that later)
Look at the illustration Below. This illustration shows the Am pentatonic scale at its root note 5th fret.
Now it's time for you to go review the Am pentatonic scale at the root note fret position and return here to lesson 5.
Once you review the Am pentatonic section you will need to do the assignments.
