Five Notes That Will Change Your World
This intermediate-level workshop is for the mandolin player looking to improve their improvisational skills.
Learn how this ancient five-note scale (and a few variations of it) can take your solos to the next level.
Explore new ways to use pentatonic scales in bluegrass, blues, rock, country, jazz, and swing.
I believe the concepts presented in this workshop can transform your playing, and I am excited to share them with you.
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.
