This was so good...often I have been stuck in that first box. I like the feel of the major but couldn’t figure out why it sometimes didn’t fit. You just showed me that My problem was when i would slide forward 3 frets I would still use the old root note position from the minor box. Especially. I could never figure out why other people’s runs made melodic sense and sounded more “interesting” but the way you explained to resolve or utilize the next chords root for emphasis when the progression was over that chord makes this video golden. Like a pentatonic solo life hack. Can’t wait till I can seamlessly slip into that diatonic. I’ll get there🎸🔥FYI..subscribed

Very helpful video... so when you say C major pentatonic scale is the same as Am pentatonic scale this is because A is the relative minor to C? So G major and em would be same and B major F minor the same and on and on?
GuitarZoom.com (1 month ago)
Yes, but B major would be the same as Ab/G#...just a misstep is all :-) Steve

At 12:40 the key to good solo guitar playing becomes clear. So far from just being a guide to a simple approach to soloing, this leads into the key to it all.

There is so much good content in this video. Every time I rewatch it, there seems to be something else I learn(retain). I seem to have my chords down, but was struggling to understand how to play notes in pentatonic scales that made sense. And good ideas for practice. I downloaded ChordPulse and am slowly making my way through the examples you gave. very helpful. Thanks so much!
Conan the Destroyer (1 month ago)
Great video and lesson!!! I just realized, some teachers show the scale right side up and some show it right side down. That has been the biggest visual confusion factor for me. Which is correct to show and learn the low E string at the top of the page or at the bottom? It is so inconsistent between teachers and books and scale papers.

I feel like I owe you my bank account for this one lesson. This has done more for me than any in person lesson I've ever taken. I feel both ripped off by other guitar teachers and indebted to you for being a great one. If I ever actually make some money in this life, I will remember this and share some with you or pay it forward. Thanks.

Love these videos man. I've been watching them for a couple of years and they have helped a lot. Could you possibly do a video of chord progressions/scales using the capo at various frets and perhaps different tunings/exotic world styles, if that's cool?. That would be awesome. Thanks again.

thank you Steve, I've been in a rut for over a 10 years now and I'm trying my hardest to get out of it. I figure start with the basics, scales. when I met Zakk Wylde I asked him if had any advise for aspiring shredders, he told me to practice my Pentatonics, minor and major. at the time I just wasn't interested in learning because I had no one to guide me but at the same time my soul was screaming to get out of this rut and i was too embarrassed to admit I was stuck.

I am a beginner at this, and I am also a beginner when it comes to amps. Do you use pedals to get that sound, or do you use plugins from a DAW? :)
GuitarZoom.com (2 months ago)
Well, I use both for different videos. Sometimes I use a VST (plugin) for sounds, and sometimes I run an amp (Hughes and Kettner Grandmeister Deluxe 40) for many of these recordings. Steve

Very helpful instruction. Through brute force and memorization I've learned the 5 box positions, major and minor, but don't know well how to move them or really play something interesting or creative. This helped. Saludos, desde Colonia Centro Historico, Puebla, Mexico, DerRobMann sends...

When someone says play in E flat,(as you did toward the end) how do we know if we play major or minor? Do we HAVE to know,or will both “magically” work?
Jack Loganbill (12 days ago)
Typically we play major scales over major chords, minor scales over minor chords

HI Steve. This is in my opinion a very important lesson for beginning guitar players and intermediate also. While there is much more to it, you consolidated it down nicely. I've found that many guitar players are weak in the area of this lesson, especially people who play mostly rock. The pentatonic position is learned early on and the major scale is learned way to late in the development of their guitar skills. This lessons knowledge was skills I learned early on and helped me immensely through the years. Your knowledge of theory is much more advanced than mine, and I have a question. The A minor and C major have the same notes. Why when explaining these two as being the same did you leave out the F note and the B note which are in both scales? Did I miss something while watching the video? I'm always in the learn mode. Thanks and great work.

SEBASTION HAWK (2 months ago)
One question, though; what is this effect(chord chasing-changing keys) relative to staying in the key of Aminor, and, keeping your licks within the key of Am, the Am pentatonic, by using Cionian pentatonic(already synched according to theory), an FLydian pentatonic, and Gmyxolydian pentatonic, all staying within the key of Am or A aeolian? Does the chord chasing give more of a feeling of a harmonious disonance, or actually give more melodic feelings? WHen do I want to use modal licks, staying within the main key vs. changing the key in my licks to reflect the key of the chord being played? I can do both, but, am ignorant to choosing between the two for a given effect...all while knowing that anyone can do a chromatic scale and use all 12 tones, stressing the root of the chord being played...

Charles Jackson (2 months ago)
Great video man. This immediately opens up a lot. I'm an advanced/beginner. I know both of those shapes of the major and minor pentatonic. The way you demostrated the application of these shapes makes playing fills and lead breaks very satifying.
Mk Ultra (2 months ago)
Since it has notes in common with chromatic any chord in any key works. Also take any 7th chord arpeggio and add an 11 for the rest of the pentatonic qualities. Also if you harmonize the major scale in fourths and add one more note to it one gets more pentatonic qualities harmonized within a chord scale like modes or modal pentatonic. I helped too.
