Where would we be without the pentatonic scale?

As one of the few Greek words in my vocabulary, I really treasure the word “pentatonic”. Five notes. Everyone says all you need is three chords and the truth, but for fingerstyle blues, it’s more like five notes and your thumb.

We’re going to see a lot our friend David playing the pentatonic scale in this course, most often in the open position.


Right-hand coordination is kind of the whole bowl of queso at this stage of the game, so it’s worth taking the time with this first handful of licks to really groove on keeping time with your thumb and paying close attention to how your fingers synchronize with it.

(Queso, for the uninitiated, is a Tex-Mex thing of which, like snowflakes, there is an infinite variety, if snowflakes were something served molten, in a bowl, with tortilla chips and 33º Fahrenheit Lone Star.)

    The display did improve.
    I remember the previous effect, I can directly pull it up or down
    But now I have to click in a small place, it ’s really bad
    I have been looking forward to your improvement on this point, but no
    I love guitar pro
