Claude demonstrates this concept by performing a variety of licks that use wide intervals based out of both the major scale and the pentatonic scale. By simply playing two notes together in intervals that you probably already play such as a major third or a seventh and simply play the interval note one octave higher you get a new and more interesting sound. “You have to skip over multiple strings to get these intervals”, says Johnson, “and you can also do this modally, but that’s another topic in itself”. Claude says that he covers a lot of this in his course “Killer Guitar Control Secrets”. Guitar TAB’s as well as his course is available at

The major scale, aka the Ionian Mode, is a seven tone diatonic scale that is widely used in western music. The eighth duplicates the first at double its frequency so that it is called a higher octave of the same note, which its name is derived from Latin "octavus", the eighth.

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