Hi guys, been looking through this site for a while now and have just joined. I was wondering if any of you guys know of any songs that wouldn't be too hard to play that use the minor pentatonic scale in the key of Am? (Preferably easy metal / rock songs).

Cheers guys!

the beginning to Fade to black?


I believe the verse and chorus are in Am, but I think the intro was in a different key

Cool, I'll check those out. Just to confirm, they do use the pentatonic minor scale?

The solo in Stairway to Heaven (by Led Zeppelin) is almost only A minor pentatonic.. but with a few added notes from the A natural minor scale.

The songs I posted may be full A natural minor, I don't really see the difference. but Am pentatonic would definitely work over anything in Am

Psycho - System Of A Down


Achilles last stand is in E minor.

any song in minor that uses a pentatonic scale?
just play it in Am, you might actually learn something

edit
nice coincidence, i'm pretty sure i'm now hearing A minor, mahavishnu orchestra - dream
not simple though, but has got quite some pentatonic work
oh and now its changed key..
