Pentatonic scales are responsible for many of the most recognizable licks and melodies of all time.

The guitar lick from "My Girl," the melody of "Amazing Grace," Lester Flatt's famous G-run are examples of major pentatonic scales.

Classic rock songs "Voodoo Child" (Jimi Hendrix) and "Sunshine of Your Love" (Cream) are based around minor pentatonic riffs.

David Grisman's mandolin standard E.M.D. also utilizes the minor pentatonic scale.

These scales are not only easy to hear; they are easy to master on the mandolin and are a favorite choice among many improvisers.

Learn how mastering pentatonic scales can take your mandolin playing to the next level.
