Hey guitar guys and gals…
Claudio “Guitar” Johnsonater here back again…
Comin atcha with another installment of my blog mini lessons.
Today I want to talk about 3-note-per-string pentatonic patterns.
One interesting thing about them is that if you play 3 notes on
1 string in the pentatonic scale, and then go to the next higher
string and start on the same fret, you’re going to be repeating a note.
This used to kinda annoy/baffle me, lol…
I mean the patterns seemed physically cool to play but why
would I want to learn runs that repeated notes?
But then I thought about it and I realized how musical it
can be to repeat a note.
This kind of gave me a new way to look at these licks.
For example, in E pentatonic, we could play on the D string
and repeat every note sliding up like this:
Now lets extrapolate this musical idea to the 3-note-per-string
pentatonic patterns and Viola… We can create something like this:
Hope that made a tiny bit of sense 🙂
Now if this lesson was too easy or too advanced, (or even just right, lol)
