In this easy beginner lead guitar lesson Claude discusses both the minor pentatonic scale and the major pentatonic scale and the difference between the two. Johnson demonstrates the scale pattern in the key of A as follows; 5th fret of the 6th string with first finger to the 8th fret with 4th finger to the 5th fret of the 5th string with first finger to the 7th fret with 3rd finger to the 5th fret of the 4th string with first finger to the 7th fret with 3rd finger to the 5th fret of the 3rd string with first finger to the 7th fret with 3rd finger to the 5th fret of the 2nd string with first finger to the 8th fret with 4th finger to the 5th fret of the first string with first finger and to the 8th fret with 4th finger. By simply moving this shape down three frets it is now A major pentatonic but it is also F#m (F sharp minor) pentatonic. Claude follows this by moving the sequence down to the open position. You now have either Em pentatonic or G major pentatonic. He then plays some example licks incorporating hammer-on and pull-off’s and bending.

The Pentatonic Scale is a musical scale with five notes per octave. They can be found all over the world and are the main scale used in the Blues genre.
