I guess some of you are wondering how you can go about learning this abundance of material and apply the scale effectively. Well let's talk about some easy ways of learning to master Pentatonic Scale Application.
If you play hard rock, metal, alternative, or anything related to power chords, the Minor Pentatonic Scale can be a good buddy of yours. For example, say you're jamming along with someone who is playing Power Chords from the 6ths string, 5th fret. Power chords are neither major nor minor chords--as they contain a root, 5th, but no third. Anyhow, we're going to treat this power chord as a minor. The power chord starts on the 6th string, 5th fret and so will your pentatonic shape.
I would suggest that you go ahead and learn 6th string tonics of each shape. First, learn to mobilize this shape, then move onto other shapes that seem easy to apply from the 6th string.
There will be more to come on this subject matter--effective and enjoyable ways of learning Pentatonic Application.
Anyway, I'm out like a fat kid in dodge ball. I hope you liked this lesson.
