Ex­am­ple5 SIX-bar study

Guitar Techniques - - Legato Minor Pentatonics Learning Zone -

For this study, played over a Im (Em) IVm (Am) Vm (Bm) pro­gres­sion in E mi­nor, bar 1 uses Ex­am­ple 2’s as­cend­ing fifth string root scale, but this time as E Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (E G A B D) over the Em chord. It leads into bar 2 which is part of Ex­am­ple 1’s pat­tern over the Am chord. Bar 3 uses Ex­am­ple 3’s idea over an Em chord, but as a sixth-string root, E Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic. Bar 4 is a B Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (B D E F# A) idea over the Bm chord. Bar 5 is a frag­ment of Ex­am­ple 1’s ap­proach but as E Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic, lead­ing into bar 6’s fifth­string root, as­cend­ing A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scale over the Am. Fi­nally, bars 7 and 8 in­cor­po­rate Ex­am­ple 1’s shape in E mi­nor, but with the ap­proach seen in Ex­am­ple 4. Pick­ing sug­ges­tions are given for you to try out.
