Blues Soloing Move - House Pattern (Major) To Box 3 Pentatonic Minor To Pentatonic 6 Pattern

This video is one of my favorite "moves" around and through some of my favorite blues soloing scales and sounds. If you've ever heard me talk about what I call the, "core position," for many blues players... this is it. "Notice how, with minimal movement, I can go through 3 unique sounds easily and comfortably, with only minor adjustments getting from one scale to the next... In my opinion, that should be your goal, not moving around the fretboard in large leaps and bounds."....Griff

Beginning Blues Guitar Lesson - The 4 Blues Chord Shapes You Should Know

"The blues typically revolves around 7th chords... not major 7th, and no minor 7th, but dominant 7th chords. Those chords can come in a few different shapes and sizes, but there are some basics that you really should know, and that's today's video."...Griff.

Blues Guitar Soloing Lesson - Sliding Through The Pentatonic Scale On The Ring Finger
Griff Hamlin_ Blues Guitar Unleashed

Blues Guitar Soloing Lesson - Sliding Through The Pentatonic Scale On The Ring Finger

"It's fairly common using the "boxes" of the pentatonic or blues scale to get stuck in one pattern (which is often box 1 or maybe 2)... But if you can get used to starting with your ring finger, there's a cool little slip and slide move that will take you through over 2 octaves of pentatonic scale real estate pretty darn quickly! Aside from being a good way to play some cool blues/rock sounds because of the increase in speed, this is just another great way to visualize your fretboard that you may not be that familiar with. So have fun, and try it out..." Griff.

Griff Hamlin, "There are a lot of different tunes that, while "bluesy," aren't really blues songs (they aren't a 12 bar blues.) This particular progression, which is used in songs like, "Blue On Black," "Sweet Home Alabama," and a lot of other classic rock and "blues" tunes, lends itself really well to experimenting with both the major and minor blues and pentatonic scales. So, in this video, I'll show you the progression, how I put it in the looper, and how I go back and forth between those major and minor pentatonic scales to hear how they work and how they create contrast when used together."

Episode 3: In this chapter I will show how to expand the 3 Chord progression and introduce a II V I turnaround.

This will also introduce the minor 7th chord to the progression. Episode 5: In this chapter, I will discuss using the shapes directly out of the chord to solo. This includes major, minor and diminished triads. Episodes 6 & 7: In these chapters, there is more on soloing using the shapes, triads.
