How To Use The Pentatonic Scale In A Lead Guitar Solo

There is a language to Lead Guitar. That language is the pentatonic scale. If you master the pentatonic scale, you’ve really mastered a huge chunk of lead guitar.

In this pentatonic scale guitar lesson, I’m going to run through all 5 boxes of the scale. After that, I am going to explain a few ways you can use those boxes to make some magic! The last thing that we are going to do today is probably the most important part. Exploring actually guitar solos that use these positions.

We are going to be looking at note for note solos by Albert King, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Norman Greenbaum, and Billy Gibbons.
