I was wondering if people use the 4th position A minor pentatonic scale (above the 5th position) That uses the open strings.I was making a video while doing a solo in Aminor pentatonic scales and putting the video of the positions during the Aminor backing track to all the different positions (there are 7 of them 5 regular ones and another of the fith and another of the 4th)..I figure if I can target the notes eventually seeing them on video I will be able to remember them in all the 7 positions in time! I was reading when doing a solo it sounds nice if you end your lick or your passing notes on the chord it is in.. A chord ends in A , D chord ends in D.. You know.. Knowing all the 5 positions I came across a picture that had the forth position up past the neck using the open strings so I decided to put this one on the video (to be) as well.. I am wondering if people actually use this Aminor pentatonic scale in 4th position using the open strings.. It is nice playing in G or E minor when you have all the open notes to pull off.. I did not know you could do it in Aminor as well! Hey , what do you want , I am a newbie at 47, but this theory part intrigues me.. I look at MODES and I still can’t get my head around them yet, but have been only playing seriously for a year or so.. Was just wondering what you seasoned guitarists think..
Thanks for looking, and be sure to comment!
I am making the videos to help me learn, but if anyone else is interested, I could post them in Youtube.. Remember though, they are for beginners who want to play the blues but just can’t remember all the licks or where to end them.
