Welcome back! Today I wanna show you two super easy guitar tabs.
Before anything else, this tabs are made using the A minor pentatonic scale:
Super Easy Guitar Tabs
The A minor pentatonic scale is a 5 note scale really popular among musicians. It’s widely used on blues, pop, metal, any style you can think of. The A minor pentatonic scale can play over many different chords such as A7, Am, Am7, to name a few. Oftentimes, players will mix it in with the Mixolydian scale; this way a very Blues type of sound is achieved.
For this Super Easy Guitar Tabs I’m about to show , we are gonna be working with scale patterns. Scale patterns, as the title suggest, are repeated combinations of notes or distance. For instance, you can play 4 notes after each scale note.
For example, you can play the 1st note of the scale above which is the 5th fret on the 6th string, and then play 3 consecutive notes. After that you can go to the next note of the pentatonic scale which is the 8th fret on the 6th string and do the same thing; play 3 more consecutive notes right after. For the first example I wanna show you a backwards, very popular, pentatonic scale pattern:
It’s a 3note pattern. You start on the 8th fret of the 1st string and play 2 more consecutive notes after it. Then you go to the next note which is the 5th note of the 1st string and do the same thing; two consecutive notes, and so on. I must’ve played this pattern so much when I was just starting out. In the end, you can come up with your own scale patterns. Experiment with it, skip strings, come up with irregular patterns; I mean there’s a lot of things you can do with it.
That’s all for today. I hope you’ve enjoyed this Super Easy Guitar Tabs article and please remember to check out our instructional DVDs.
