“Today we’re talking about pentatonic runs”, says Johnson, “it’s a real easy way to get around the neck”. Claude demonstrates this easy way of connecting positions of the minor pentatonic scale in the key of A starting in the first position as follows; 5th fret of the 4th string with first finger and then a hammer-on to the 7th fret with 3rd finger to the 5th fret of the 3rd string with first finger and then a hammer-on to the 7th fret with 3rd finger and then a slide to the 9th fret and then to the 8th fret of the 2nd string with 2nd finger and then slide to the 10th fret to the 8th fret of the first string with first finger and then a hammer-on to the 10th fret with 3rd finger and finally ending with a slide to the 12th fret. Claude continues by playing a variety of alternate ways to play this sequence to make it your own. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy lead guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
The Chromatic Scale is a scale that uses 12 pitches each of which are one semitone above or below one another. Each semitone is the same size, 100 cents, and is equally spaced from one another.
A Pentatonic Scale is a musical scale with five notes per octave and is very common and found all over the world.
