Two Simple Shapes UNLOCK the Pentatonic Scale EVERYWHERE – and make it MORE musical!

Two Simple Shapes UNLOCK the Pentatonic Scale EVERYWHERE – and make it MORE musical!

Use two simple geometric shapes to instantly find the major and minor pentatonic scales anywhere on the fretboard. In this video, you’ll also learn how to make pentatonic scales sound like *music* rather than scales, how to instantly turn them into blues and hexatonic scales, and how to fluently move within these scales up, down, and across the fretboard. This video is jam-packed with useful insights. It really is the ONLY pentatonic scale lesson you will EVER need.

You need to know the pentatonic scales — especially on the guitar. That’s because these patterns are popular in guitar solos and riffs. But WHY?

Most people just memorize the pentatonic scales and never fully understand the true power they hold. So this video explains exactly how pentatonic scales work … and why they’re so important in music.

Songwriting is fun when you can actually see what you’re doing. I use the familiar patterns of color to explain music theory so you can write songs.
