In this lesson, I’m going to demonstrate string-skipping with the A minor pentatonic scale, for this exercise we are using all five patterns of the pentatonic scale in A minor. These patterns are easy to link up with all the other keys, and I think you’ll find them very useful for adding some flash into your riffs and solos.
It is one of the most widely used scale patterns in all of western music. You will find yourself using this scale often when improvising in genres from rock and blues to bluegrass and jazz. Now, all we need to do to turn this scale into a finger-busting string skipping exercise is rearrange it to include playing on non-adjacent strings. CLICK HERE FOR THE PAGE TO THIS LESSON.
