Guitar: Beginning Improvisation

New musicality video:

In the guitar Resource Pack this month Dylan Welsh introduces the versatile minor pentatonic scale as a great way to start exploring improvisation, in both major and minor keys:

– Introduction to the minor pentatonic scale
– How and where to play it
– How to learn from solos you hear
– Limitation exercises to build your creativity
– Additional tips and tricks for getting good results
MP3 tracks demonstrating the scale in two keys, providing two backing tracks (in major and minor) and two example solos over those backing tracks.
Dylan first teaches a simple fretboard pattern, and then shows you how to put it to real musical work in a variety of ways – all the while connecting your ears with your instrument. With a couple of examples in the accompanying quick reference guide, he also shows real solos from the rock world that use exactly this approach.
