Part 3 of 5 – Beginner Guitar Lesson – Breaking Out of Pentatonic Box

Break out of the box! The minor pentatonic scale is a crutch for a lot of people. They learn that and they are stuck in it. Today this video will show you how you can break out of the box.

Personally, I think the box is great. This video will show you how to make it even better. Guitar soloing is all about expanding your skills so you can express yourself. Breaking out of the minor pentatonic box will give you more notes to do just that.

Bonus: Pinky strength building exercise that I use to warm up. Don’t forget about your pinky. Build up the speed and strength so you can add it to all of your solos.
