A minor Pentatonic Grouping of patterns

The next illustration will be that of the A minor pentatonic scale scanning 5 different positions. Now you will be really moving around the fret-board. In this exercise you will be playing from left to right. Everything starts on the G note of the 3rd fret Low E string. This exercise will help you move around in different positions and combine some of the positions we have learned. This exercise starts on the G note.

Look at the illustrations below. The first illustration shows the exercise with the notes. The second illustration shows the fingers that play the exercise. 1-3, 1-3 slide down two frets. As soon as you hit the second 3 you slide and never pick the note that you slid to. Then 1-3, 1-3 slide again. Finish off the scale with 1-3, 1-3, 3. You will be ending on the high E 12th fret. You need to practice this over and over again until you have it completely memorized.

1 = Index Finger
2 = Middle
3 = Ring
4 = Pinkie
T = Thumb

  Now Listen to this run

Use the illustration below and suggested fingering pattern to play from fret 3 to fret 12, up and down the fret-board.

Look above and find the G note on the Low E string 3rd fret. Play that note with your 1 finger. Now find the A note on the Low E string 5th fret. Play that note with your 3 finger.

The next note will be on the A string 3rd fret. Play that C note with your 1 finger. The next note is again on the A string, but this time as soon as you pick it slide your 3 finger down to the 7th fret same A string. This is how leads are really played. You play both of those notes by only picking the string one time.

By playing this exercise over and over again, you will begin to come up with your own ideas. Pieces of the puzzle will start to come together.

Good Luck,
