The Pentatonic Scale – Easy, Versatile and a great first step into musical theory

The Pentatonic Scale - Easy, Versatile and a great first step into musical theory 1

In this tutorial, I take a look at the importance of musical theory, the major, minor and pentatonic scales. I focus on why the pentatonic scale is so great to learn, how to apply it in both major and minor and how to blend the two. I hope you find it helpful.

Here are some of my favourite channels for learning guitar and music theory!

Paul Davis. Great teacher who has some brilliant stuff for beginners – www.youtube.com/channel/UC_Oa7Ph3v94om5OyxY1nPKg
