Today, the legendary B.B. King passed away. He was undoubtedly a great in the guitar world. Saying so much with so few notes! A must study for any aspiring guitar player. Here are a few licks in his style.
Beginners, part two book is now out. If you work steadily through both books, you'll soon be a player!
The chart below contains a wealth of useful information. From the outside in we have:
1. Key signatures;
2. Major Keys;
3. Number of sharps and flats in each key;
4. The Relative Minor.
You should try and familiarise yourself with all of this information but if all you know is a Minor Pentatonic scale, perhaps the best thing to learn is the Relative Minor to each major key. This will enable you to use your Pentatonic Scale over songs in major keys, eg. Use Am Pentatonic over songs in C Major, Em Pentatonic over songs in G Major; Bm over D Major; etc....
Once you've learnt the Minor Pentatonic Scale in one position, you' want to extend it over the entire fretboard. There are five positions in all to learn and they are based around minor chord shapes. This chart shows you the positions of both. Take time to learn the chord shapes and Root Notes (R).
