BGU Lesson 24. When Griff speaks of playing the boxes in major then minor for solos.

My question the sequence of the box status stays the same except for changing key of. Box 1 sequence is the same for all keys ??


Blues - it's in me and it's got to come out.
Hi Alang -

The pentatonic box patterns are always the same. They never change. They just get moved to play in different keys. Or to play Major Pentatonic or minor Pentatonic scales in a key. They also never change in sequence to each other. It's the nature of the way the frets board is designed. The Box 1 shape will always be between the Box 5 shape and the Box 2 shape.

See you down the road! :thumbup:

Thanks, that is what I thought. I believe I over thought this point. I think my biggest problem is not playing new notes through out these scales. I mostly played Am,E and G.
Again thanks, it is really neat to have a forum like this and all the great people that will go out of their way to help.
God Bless
