“One thing that you really want to learn is the pentatonic’s in the open position”, says Johnson. Claude demonstrates in the key of A that you can use all of the open strings except the 2nd string which you have to use the first fret. “In the key of E you can use all the strings”, says Johnson. Claude demonstrates the scale in the key of E as follows; open 6th string to the 3rd fret with 3rd finger to the open 5th string to the 2nd fret with 2nd finger and repeats this for the 4th and 3rd strings and then uses the same pattern on the first and 2nd string as he did on the 6th string. Claude continues by demonstrating open pentatonic patterns for the key of G and says that you should learn them for every key. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy beginner lead guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.

A Pentatonic Scale is a musical scale with five notes per octave and is very common and found all over the world.
