Essential Minor Pentatonic Songs & Riffs // Position 1 and BEYOND...

Here's the first in a series of videos showing you how to play a bunchy of riffs that are derived from a scale.

Over time, this series will help give context to the scale you either know, or help you decide which are worth learning right now.

All the riffs in this video are based on the Minor Pentatonic scale, which you can learn here

If you like this idea but the riffs are too hard for you right now - start with this much easier series based on the EASIEST scale on guitar + 10 riffs!
