The Minor Pentatonic Scale

In this lesson we look at the Minor Pentatonic Scale. This is one of the most common scales in all of rock and pop music. We look at how to play a basic, common fingering of the scale, move it around to different areas on the neck and then learn a riff based on the scale.

    Your lessons are great. I remember watching this video and understanding more deeply the lines that I had learned when I first picked up the bass. “Oh, this line by Geezer is built out of a minor pentatonic scale. I can see why he chose that for this song, because it’s meant to be somber and introspective, but not necessarily depressive and sad.” Thank you.
