Lesson 13.2 – Improvising the First Position

Improvising within the Pentatonic Scale is easy, as all you have to do is remember the position. There are 5 positions in total that we will cover across the lessons.

Below is an image of the first position, with the root notes in red. In the last chapter, our root note was E. But you can take this position and move it anywhere on the neck. Whatever the red notes are, that is what key you are in.

Note that for E, the first notes are open strings. Other keys will not begin this way (for example, for the Key of A – we would start on the 5th fret of the first string).

We will cover other keys in later lessons, so just know that this pattern is moveable. You don’t need to worry about finding other keys yet.

Coming soon.
