Minor Seventh Pentatonic
When you start to play this you may notice that these patterns don't always flow easy on the fret board but, if played correctly this exercise should sound smooth and fluid. You can try sliding down or up to different notes, all down strokes or something else to smooth out the line. Lets start at the top with some pull-offs:
E10--13p10-8--10p8-6-8p6-3-6p3---------------------------------------------
B--13-------11------8-----6---6-8p6-3-6p3----------------------------------
G------------------------------7-----5---5-7p5-3-5p3-----------------------
D-----------------------------------------8-----5---5-8p5-3-5p3------------
A----------------------------------------------------8-----5---5-8p5-3-5p3-
e---------------------------------------------------------------8-----6----
Now going up with hammer-ons:
E-------------------------------------------------------3h6---6h8----8h10--
B------------------------------------------3h6---6h8-3h6---6h8---8h11------
G-----------------------------3h5---5h7-3h5---5h7--------------------------
D----------------3h5---5h8-3h5---5h8---------------------------------------
A---3h5---5h8-3h5---5h8----------------------------------------------------
e3h6---6h8-----------------------------------------------------------------
To build speed around this scale use a metronome and start slow and gradually speed up. A large number of guitarist use similar pentatonic scales in they're soloing. Legend: p=pull off h=hammer on Standard tuning (low to high) EADGBE.
