Everyone learns the pentatonic scale but so many players never graduate from scale ‘noodling’; gaining the ability to truly improvise meaningful guitar solos.
In this progressive pentatonic guitar course, Danny Gill delivers a tried and tested method for taking charge of those pentatonic box shapes. The results are more melodic, ear catching guitar solos. Rather than a ‘stock licks’ tutorial, the emphasis is placed on harnessing a voice and personality all of your own within your improvisation.
First, you will learn how to apply rhythm and basic melodic tools - such as phrasing and simple vibrato - to a single position of the minor pentatonic scale.
In each lesson Danny introduces a new transformative technique, allowing you to build your creative guitar soloing tool set. With tips on making the essential guitar techniques - such as hammer ons, pull offs and string bends - sound like the pros, you will learn how to make bold musical statements with only a few notes!
Danny takes a new approach to memorising your pentatonic scale positions, with patterns which engage your ear, teach you the fretboard and provide just enough music theory to set you on your own path.
Across this 11 part guitar improvisation course you will steadily build a full and confident picture of both the minor pentatonic and blues scale. Instead of simply learning the shapes, Danny gives you instant musical applications and methods for simple, yet effective, classic rock guitar melodies from each small pattern, before introducing the next.
With this approach and step by step method you will not only, memorise your pentatonic and blues scales, but learn how to connect them across the neck and, most importantly, visualise them in any key; all the while creating guitar solos you can be proud of.
