Master the PENTATONIC scale on the entire fretboard!

Hi , this is Paul and today learning the best way to play .

Hi , this is Paul and today we're learning the best way to play the Pentatonic skill of the entire night .

So if you're gonna play like this , stay tuned .

So we've all seen the Pentatonic boxes that cover the entire neck so you can jump around freely on the entire fret board .

But this technique we're about to learn is so much more versatile and gives you much more insight in the notes used of the skill , the pena to skill can be seen as the basis of a lot of other stuff .

So if you know what you're doing , that means a great deal for this video .

We're staying in the key of G major , but it works exactly the same for every other key minor or major .

It doesn't matter .

The pena scale is built up on the one , the two , the 3 to 5 and the six of the major scale .

So 1235 and six , those notes are used from the major scale .

So knowing that we're gonna play that skill up and down .

So visualizing it from every G on the fret board is the key to this exercise .

So this G is the first we're starting on , we're going up and we're going down as well .

So five notes down and both ways up or down always lead to another .

So if you're growing up , the next key is over here , never going down .

So the first league I played was I think some like that .

So we're starting on the six of the Pentatonic scale .

In this case , that is the E for number nine on the third string , then we go to one and two and the two , we bend to three .

So that's the major , not minor would be that's major release and pull off to eight again , back to the six and then to the five and then we slide from 1 to 2 and back to one .

So that is a pattern .

Now we know that one pattern , but we're gonna play that pattern on any G note all over the board .

Now I went to over here .

This is the same G only on a different position .

So the fingering changes me .

Now we can go one octave lower to this , for example .

So here the pattern is like this , we want to go one octave higher .

Again , we can try this G on the first string .

You can use a slide if bending is too difficult over here .

But , and of course , the highest octave we got .

So playing these licks in octaves gives it much more musical sense and knowing where you are in the skill .

So on the one or on the three or on the five or on the six , whatever gives the lick much more meaning .

Instead of just noodling on , rambling on , going from low to high and back down without even knowing what you're doing .

So you should be able to find a G on any spot on a guitar .

It's really an essential skill for guitar players knowing where the notes on the fretboard are GGGG GG .

There are so many GS , but all those GS bear opportunities .

So you can start on any G or you can see that G as a starting point .

Of course , you don't have to start on the G .

But if you want to link the Penton scale to that G , that's very convenient .

So the next leg was just a run up the scale 1235 and then back to three and five and then six and one .

So we're gonna try to play that everywhere .

You can really play it everywhere and the more places you know , where to play it , the more versatile you are breaking it up in much more smaller patterns instead of a big giant pattern like this will make you much more nimble playing all over the board .

All right .

The next lick I did was something like this .

So I do a hammer on from the 2 to 3 starting on this G .

So this is a two hammer 2321 and then to two again , back to one to six and five .

And then I went to an octave lower and now I'm using slide to set up a pull out of an MR .

This was on the basis of this che now we go and went out to flower again doing the same .

Then I ended on the G over here .

Then I did a sweep .

I think , I'm so sorry .

So I started on the C shape of the gauge system .

We all know the gauge system , the C shape .

Then I went to the D note on the first string back to the D 10 level .

And then I went up on the scale depending on the scale of G major on just the bottom two strings , which is not per se this exercise , but it's a very cool lake as well .

Yeah .

So , and that was what I played .

So let's say you wanna play a lick in the key of C , just find the CS and do the same .

It's very easy .

So the CEO here , for example , see over here and the easier you find AC or a G or a B flat or an F or an A sharp or whatever , the easier you can play to depend on a skill over the entire neck and to make the portions small , the parts small , you can be much more versatile , changing everything around makes everything way more easy .

If you know what you're doing , let's say you're bending to the third and you know , the core chain is too minor .

It becomes ac minor , you know , that , that be used to be flat instead of , oh it's gonna happen , of course , changing to a minor .

You know , you don't know what happens .

Or let's say you want to add a seven , a flat seven to the scale because we're playing a G7 cord , you can just add one note and the note is the same on every pattern because you know the patterns .

Yeah , stuff like that happen .

So um yeah , just be versatile , be flexible .

Find any G play the pattern from there up and down in both directions and , and know when you're on the next G and think from that G again , the same pattern .

So we start on this G play the pattern and now start again in your hand .

You don't have to start again literally , but you need to think you're starting over .

All right , I hope this little lesson gave you some insight in the world of Pentatonic .

So the backing track I played over in the beginning is downloadable on my Patreon page and taps for what I played as well .

Um So if you want to support me , check out that site and you're really helping me out too , if you just like this video or leave your comment or share this video , whatever .

Thank you so much .

Have a great day and I'll see you next time with another video .

Goodbye .

Cheers .
