Guitar Lesson Overview

This video lesson demonstrates a few ways of using the pentatonic scale in the key of E. This lesson also covers some bending and phrasing. I am using a simple drum pattern created with the free drum program called HammerHead. Once you are comfortable with the pentatonic scale, you can build your own licks and phrases.
